Fatal Boat Crash at Lake
The Patrol said the larger boat slid over the smaller boat, killing Linda Driller of St. Charles and injuring seven others on board.
"It's kind of ironic that, just a week ago, we had a sobriety checkpoint on the water, just a short distance from where this accident occurred," said Nick Humphrey of the Water Patrol. "Out of 58 boats stopped, 10 were intoxicated, so almost one out of every six boaters were drunk."
The Water Patrol arrested the driver of the larger boat for operating it under the influence of alcohol.
