Lake Lanier Boating Crash Leaves One Dead, One Injured

By Grant Law Office on April 26, 2012

One boater lost his life and another was severely injured when their boat was struck by another boat on Lake Lanier near Buford, Georgia recently, according to a news report from 11 Alive.

The boat damaged in the crash and those who had been aboard were found during the night on Lake Lanier when another boat occupied by a young couple ran into the damaged boat in the water. The couple’s own boat was damaged during the discovery, so the pair swam to shore and flagged down a passing driver, who called 9-1-1. Rescue workers arrived at the scene to find the boat’s driver, a man, had lost his life in the crash and the boat’s passenger, a woman, was severely injured.

The woman was taken to a local hospital for treatment of her injuries, and both damaged boats were hauled out of the water. Investigators are still examining the evidence to determine how the crash occurred. The couple whose boat struck the injured people’s boat did not say that they saw the boat before the crash or that they knew what their own boat had hit.
