Two Killed in a Boat Crash

Two Killed in a Boat Crash

Rock Hill SC Boat Accident Lawyer

A child and pregnant woman were found dead after a boat crash over Memorial Day weekend.

While out on a lake in North Carolina, a speed boat went over the top of a pontoon boat, killing two and hospitalizing one.  No one on the speedboat was injured.

Investigators do not believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.  According to Sgt. Anthony Sharum with the Wildlife Resource Commission, both boats were coming towards each other. The pontoon boat was moving at a slower speed, and appeared to be heading into a dock.

The speedboat driver told authorities he did not see the pontoon boat.  Officials said it didn’t appear the pontoon boat could’ve avoided getting hit due to it’s slower speed.
