Default Boat Hits Car This Morning.......

Just heard on the radio that a boat traveling at a high rate of speed hit the causeway on I-77 at exit 30, went airborne and hit a car on the interstate.

They think there were three people on the boat and there are some very serious injuries.

It was very foggy this morning, I can only guess, but with it being early it was probably a bass boat with some fisherman aboard.

Man I cannot believe this, I will update as I learn more information.

Freddy don't worry than means you'd ACTUALLY have to be in the water for this to happen!

So is it Stuphen or Cig 39??? Did your wife increase your boat allocaton after 25 years??

Update,

Seems that this did not happen this morning, but late yesterday.

It could have been a performance boat, it is not clear.

Appears that ALCOHOL was a factor.

Let me know if anyone as additional information.

Dock,
here's an article on it already..
http://www.wsoctv.com/news/2421433/detail.html
From what else I've read it happened near exit 30 near the north harbor club. Appears to be a Baja Outlaw in the 25 foot range, blue and yellow.

Thanks Dork,

Scared the hell out of me at first, I have a good friend that lives at exit #30 that has a 25 Outlaw, but this appears to be a 20 Outlaw.

Funny, but I just saw a new 20 Outlaw on the south end last weekend.

Hope everyone is OK.

Yeah, its not a deep V. I was thinking Hammer, Shooter, or 20 Outlaw.
