July 4th accident

Postby allingeneral » Tue Jul 05, 2011 8:43 am

I hope everyone here had a safe and enjoyable 4th of July. I know of one bunch of folks who didn't at my local marina. Very unfortunate, but worth reading the details.

Stay alert out there, especially in area of heavy traffic (particularly jet skis!)

Woman killed in boat crash on Monroe Bay/Colonial Beach boat crash.
Date published: 7/3/2011

A West Virginia couple's vacation at Monroe Bay Campground near Colonial Beach ended in a tragic boating crash yesterday.

Lyle Hartman and his wife, Margaret, were boating on Monroe Bay when another boat crashed into them. The second boat became airborne and landed on the Hartmans' boat, said John Bull, spokesman for the Virginia Marine Resources Police.

The incident happened about 4 p.m. Lyle Hartman was piloting his boat, and another boat was trailing them, Bull said.

A jet ski appeared, and Hartman slowed "fairly quickly and dramatically," but the second boat did not, Bull said.

The second boat ran over the Hartmans' vessel, killing 53-year-old Margaret Hartman and seriously injuring her husband, Bull said.
