Woman Opposing Boating Speed Limits Seriously Injured in Boating Accident

Erica Blizzard, president of the New Hampshire Recreational Boaters Association, suffered facial injuries when the boat she was piloting crashed on New Hampshire's Lake Winnipesaukee. She is listed in critical condition at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. The accident killed one woman and injured a third woman traveling with Blizzard. Blizzard has testified in the state legislature in the past about her opposition to speed limits for boats. The 37-foot Formula powerboat crashed early Sunday morning when it hit a rocky shoreline near Diamond Island.

Blizzard's father owns the Lakeport Landing Marina in Laconia, New Hampshire. Blizzard is preparing to take over the business from her father who is retiring. She has been active in campaigns to create a "no wake" zone on the lake where she was injured, as well as being active in her opposition to speed limits. Dick Hickok, a member of the Recreational Boaters Association's board of directors, states, "There's no doubt in my mind the skill was there, the knowledge was there. Having a father who owned a marina, growing up with one, now running it, you almost have boats in your blood."

Apparently speed limits are not part of this knowledge. Remember to obey all rules when boating. This includes wearing a life preserver and obeying the speed limits.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a boating accident, please contact the Accident Lawyers Network to find an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area.
