A terrible boat accident on High Rock Lake in Davidson County, NC has resulted in the death of two people and serious injuries to one other person.
The boat accident happened when a speedboat traveling in excess of 25 mph struck a pontoon boat in the northern part of the lake. A young child on the ponton boat was killed as was a pregnant woman. A man on the pontoon boat was seriously injured. It is not clear why the accident occurred at this point but there is no indication that alcohol was involved.
As we have discussed on this blog before, boating can be extremely dangerous and the insurance issues for boating accidents can be quite complicated. This accident is a terrible tragedy and hopefully the responsible boaters will be held accountable and have adequate insurance for the claims.
