A fatal boat collision was reported in the area of Workmen Hollow Cove, near the 8 Mile Marker in Camden County, on the morning of Saturday, September 26th. A 1997 Bass Tracker was exiting the cove when it collided with a 2002 Triton Bass Boat. Upon impact, the driver of the Tracker was thrown into the water and was killed after his own vessel circled and struck him. A passenger who was riding in the Tracker was seriously injured and transported from the scene via helicopter to University Hospital in Columbia. The driver of the Triton Bass Boat sustained minor injuries and was treated at Lake Regional Hospital. All three injured parties were visiting the Lake from the St. Louis area.
The tragedy at Workmen Hollow Cove occurred just after the end of the 2015 summer season at the Lake of the Ozarks, a season that unfortunately included numerous boating accidents. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, at least forty persons were injured in accidents involving boats in the Lake Area from June of 2015 through September of 2015; seven of those injuries were fatal.
Often times, the parties who are involved in boating accidents are not at fault for the damage that results. If you or a loved one has been injured in a Missouri boating accident, the law offices of Price & Randle can provide advice and assistance that will take the guesswork out of filing a personal injury claim.
