The aircraft crashed at high speed, in a 45 degree attitude into Tezzeron Lake and sank. The pilot was not instrument rated and most likely lost control of the aircraft when he entered instrument flight conditions in a heavy snow shower. The aircraft entered a spiral dive from which the pilot was not able to recover.
