Runaway Boat on Indiana Lake Crashes, Injuring 10 People

10 People Injured After Being Ejected From Boat in Indiana

10 People Injured After Being Ejected From Boat in Indiana

Emergency medical, fire and law enforcement officials responded to the call along with Parkview Health's Samaritan air ambulance helicopter, the report said.

Ten people were injured after they were thrown from an out-of-control boat on an IN lake July 15. One had a skull fracture and another lost part of an arm. Other people who were hurt were taken to a hospital in Angola with non-life threatening injuries.

A Ski Nautique motorboat that was involved in the accident was still under power and unmanned, circling the lake at approximately 30 miles per hour.

Conservation Officer Jake Carlile launched a Department of Natural Resources patrol boat as county sheriff's deputies urged residents to move their boats and clear the area, the statement said.

According to the DNR, Carlile was able to throw a rope from his patrol boat to entangle the propeller of the runaway boat. But the runaway boat struck a dock, changed direction and hit the rear of Carlile's patrol boat, disabling the DNR boat's engine. CO Carlile was able to use a nearby personal watercraft and jump onto the runaway boat while both boats were still in motion.

An investigation later revealed 20-year-old Dominique Effinger, the operator of the boat, was speeding and cut into a sharp turn, causing the boat's passengers to be ejected from the boat. He then brought the motorboat to a stop. A DNR statement said an initial report to conservation officers indicated four injured, but the exact number of people injured has not been confirmed.

Alcohol was found to be a factor in the accident.

A minor was charged with boating while intoxicated after a runaway boat injured 10 people in IN over the weekend.

That's when it slowed enough for IN conservation officer Jake Carlile to jump on board from a jet ski.
