Mount Vernon, OH

#1 Feb 5, 2007
CLYDE, N.Y. A 23-year-old Wayne County snowmobiler was killed when he ran into a steel gate while he was riding on an old trolley bed.

The victim was identified as 23-year-old Mark Lauster Junior of Lyons, about 30 miles southeast of Rochester.

State Police Investigator Thomas Hand said passersby saw an unattended snowmobile about 1 p-m Sunday, then saw the victim lying on the ground near the gate. He said the the gate, which is marked and painted yellow, is intended to keep cars off of the trail, which is a popular spot for A-T-V's and snowmobilers.

Hand said the victim apparently tried to drive under the steel gate, which is about 40 inches off the ground, but struck it with his head.

Lauster was pronounced dead at a hospital in Newark.


This weekend has turned out to be the worst ever. Today I lost my best childhood friend. I wish I could understand why God does what he does. I won't ask why, I just wish I knew. Mark, I love you with all my heart and soul. You have always been my best friend and my Brother For Life! Don't be crossing those pearly gates without me.

So many parties, so many good times, it's hard to realize he's gone, but he would like all his frineds and family to go on like usual.
