I was on the lake Saturday afternoon, tons of bass boats everywhere. I don't want to make any assumptions but it's possible the bass-boat didn't have any lights on, seen that many times out there at night.

heard it on the radio that they were leaving the "down the hatch", one of the guys(survivor) was a firefighter.

24 Formula that the guy had for less than a month hit a triton bass boat at high speed. Driver and passenger in Formula died and a 3rd passenger(the firefighter) is in critical condition. Both Bass boat guys are OK. Steering wheel from Formula was found in the back seat.

PLEASE don't run at speed in the dark, folks. These accidents are far too common.
