20 ft Bass Boat versus Dock, Main Channel, 12 mm,


AND THE WINNER IS - - - - -  THE DOCK!!!

June 3, 2012, sometime shortly before 1:00a.m., A 1999, 20 ft NITRO Bass Boat hit dock near 12 mile mark, Majestic Condo's.  A near-by fisherman reported hearing a crash near the condo docks, which resulted in 4 Missouri State Highway Patrol boats, Sunrise Beach Fireboat and EMS along with TOWBOATU.S. responding to search the area.  Initial quick search of docks and area around 12 mile mark came up with nothing except chunks of fiberglass on dock.  

Just as search was about to be suspended, (some 20- 30 minutes later), MSHP located boat (with all lights off) just off Ozark BBQ.  They determined this vessel with 2 POB to be one that struck dock.  The driver was reported to have been ejected from the vessel after striking dock and picked up by the other occupant, who was able to pilot the boat back and retrieve him from the water,  they then left the scene.  Both POB were arrested.  The occupants appeared to have only very minor or no injuries, and refused treatment by EMS after being checked out by on-scene SUNRISE BEACH 1st Responders on SUNRISE BEACH FIREBOAT #1239.
OUCH!




VESSEL WAS IMPOUNDED FOR ADDITIONAL INVESTIGATION & HOLDING
