Carter said the 31-foot twin motor formula boat ended up some 60 feet into the weeds on the shoreline. None of the nine people aboard the vessel was injured.

The cause of the crash was attributed to nighttime conditions, the operator’s inexperience in navigating the waterway and speed. A citation was issued to the operator of the boat.
