The State Police Detective Unit assigned to the Berkshire District Attorney’s Office is investigating an apparent accidental death at Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort.

Detectives responded to the Hancock resort on Tuesday following a snow groomer and a snowmobile collision.

Kimberlee Francoeur, 30, of Lanesborough, died after the snow groomer operator backed into the snowmobile she was operating.

Jiminy Peak Ski Patrol, Hancock Fire, and Northern Berkshire EMS personnel attempted to save Francoeur’s life, but ultimately a Northern Berkshire EMS paramedic pronounced her deceased at approximately 11:20 a.m.

According to witness statements, Francoeur was working as a snowmaker and the snowmobile she was operating was stopped on the mountain when the snow groomer operator backed into the vehicle. Francoeur succumbed to the injuries she suffered in the collision.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner took custody of Francoeur’s body to determine the cause and manner of death.

Massachusetts State Police Cheshire Barracks, Massachusetts State Police Crime Scene Services Section, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration also responded to the scene.
