Boat Accident Kills Three on St. Clair River
A boating accident on the St. Clair River killed three people and seriously injured a fourth. The injured woman was taken to the University of Michigan Hospital for surgery. The dead include the survivor's husband, and boat owner, and another couple.
According to police, the 21-foot fiberglass boat collided with a dock around 9:40 pm Friday, October 10th. One of the victims was thrown from the boat and into the water upon impact. Witnesses to the crash pulled out the others and said there was "a large quantity" of beer and wine on the boat. They also detected the smell of alcohol on the victims. Police say that though there were lifejackets aboard the boat, none of the passengers were wearing one. The boat was reportedly heading home when they crashed at a high rate of speed. However, an investigation into the accident is ongoing.
The dead couple, identified as Scott Jay Gearhart and Barbara Janet Gearhart, leaves behind a 10-year-old and a 13-year-old.
