Guy in a Fountian did the same thing on Lake Mead about 4-5yrs ago and killed 4. Speed at night is stupid, add booze and ya got double trouble. Glad no one got hurt in this time.

My guess would be closer to 30 mph. Not enough damage for 50 to 60 on the rocks. Seen a 28 foot cuddy climb a rock cliff at 30. Killed the passenger.

This one was also from N. Cal Delta also.Probably not far from the other one.
The website it came from said that 2 people died in this crash.
Alcohol was a factor.
