The Jet ski hit the Fountain in the side if it's the accident off the Bohemia River last year
Depends, we have a judge here who sees that very differently.revx440 said:To my knowledge once they charge you with Drinking and boating or drinking and driving your at fault no matter what...
I might be wrong..
Exactly right!HTRDLNCN said:Keep in mind these days just having alcohol on the boat will
most likely get you an "alcohol related" charge..
We get closer and closer to a police state everyday and noone seems to care until one day its too late.
Read post #3 in my thread from June 14 where this subject was addressed. The whole text of the news release is there. From the charges against the operator of the Fountain, it sounds like he was more than just drinking.PJDiesel said:Boating related article in the Cecil Whig today, seems the operator of a boat who (somehow) HIT a jetski last year is being charged.
With all due respect to the deceased, and not having personally saw the accident occur,...... I'm confused.
The article reads (direct quote): "Szewaczak was pronounced dead at Christiana Hospital after her personal water craft collided with a 42 foot motor vessel on the Elk River near Town Point according to police"
Beginning of the article explains how the operator of the boat was charged with several counts including two alcohol related homicide counts and three additional offenses.
I know when you mention alcohol in an accident, all bets are pretty much off. But, my question is (since the newspaper didn't address it) is, how does a 42' "vessel" collide with a PWC? Seems to me, if it was a clear cut case of the larger boat crashing into the PWC and it's operator, they would report it THAT way. "Collided with" tends to lead the reader to believe the jetski hit the boat?
