Default Eye Witnesses to Texoma Accident

We are working with Oklahoma authorities to recreate this accident. If you witnessed or know the boats that did, please have them contact Investigator Johny Christian with the Oklahoma highway patrol at 580-775-0382. We are looking for the boats that were taking still photos and video prior to or immediately after the crash.

If any of us find ourselves in this families position we would want the same. Let us at least give them that before we join this world that is to fast to point fingers, lay blame, and make acusations.

It loses audio about 1/4 of the way through. Too small to tell much, but the lead boat (which sounded AWESOME) was neither of the boats involved in the accident. I think right after the sound goes out, the boat throwing the big roost might be Flash, but that is just based on the fact that Flash had a big roost -- can't actually see the boat.

I'm suprised a lot of these poker runs aren't held on Friday and a raft up party on Saturday or awards party on Saturday. It would maybe help avoid a lot of the general boating public and let the big boys have more room.

The boat in the lead is a local Skater named "***** Cat". He has been kicking the crap out of everyone but Derebery's "Byond Reason". "Nashville Kat" is second and "Flash" is third. Thats about 6 miles East of the crash site.

In aircraft accidents, vehicle accidents and boat accidents, if the “Actual” reasons for the accidents are questionable and/or reenactment can bring warning or education towards avoidance in the future the NTSB will go to great lengths to reenact the event. For the sake of accuracy they request all evidence and revue any information allowed. This takes time, effort, and yes, money. And many questions get answered and lives can be saved through what they have learned.

So the original post included a phone number for anyone to help.

If you do not have any information that will help shed light on the events (Questionable or not) of the past weekend then why post a comment or opinion? If you are trying to bump up your post count… go post some moronic opinion on “Norty’s corner gas station“, or a “What’s in a name” thread .

As for someone involved using this site as a source of information and a means to find answers… let the man be.

If your not part of the solution, don’t become part of the problem, not this time, not on this subject. Show some tact, grace and respect for not only the lost, there families, but those whom are trying to find answers!
