A Massachusetts man was killed yesterday in a skiing accident in Vermont, while skiing with his family at Sugarbush Resort.
According to Vermont State Police, the man, identified as Jeffrey O’Connor, went off a groomed path and crashed head-on into a tree. State police said he suffered significant head injuries, and that he was NOT wearing a helmet.
Members of the ski patrol team and first responders tried to provide life-saving techniques, but were ultimately unsuccessful. The 39-year-old Hampden man was brought down the mountain and transferred to an ambulance service, which pronounced him dead.
