SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Authorities say a woman who died while riding a zip line at a Utah resort was killed because she collided with a tree that was in her path.

Investigators said Friday the tree likely got in the way of 55-year-old Lisa Lambe’s zip line because of high winds.

The South Carolina woman had been found suspended in her harness and was then brought to the ground for treatment. She died last weekend after suffering serious injuries caused by the collision.

The Sundance Mountain Resort website says the “zip tours” have only been offered for about a year. They allow visitors to take in scenery while riding a zip line with more than a 2,100-foot vertical drop. Guests can control their speed and cruise at about 65 mph.
