In the winter of 1997 Shon Lewis and some friends traveled to Acadia
National Park to do some snowmobiling. By all accounts the evening
could not of gone any better. That would all change two hours later
when they returned to the parking lot of the Acadia National Park
Visitor's Center in Hull's cove.
The group of snowmobilers took a
rest while Shon decided to take a final run around the parking lot.
That would end up being a fatal decision because at some point he lost
control of his snowmobile and was killed. His machine left the parking
lot, traveled down an embankment and into a cluster of tree's. He went
head first into the tree's and died almost instantly.
Speed, loss of control and weather conditions at the time were to blame for the fatal accident.
