Now that summer is upon us, many people are getting outside to enjoy the weather. For many people, this includes a fun and relaxing boat ride on the lake. But much like on the road, there are too many reckless operators who can make the water a dangerous place to be. People who speed, drive drunk and make poor decisions behind the wheel of a boat can end up causing serious and fatal accidents.
Folks in North Carolina may have been saddened recently after a boat accident resulted in the death of a child and his pregnant mother. The man who authorities say is responsible for the crash was arrested and charged last week for his role in the devastating accident.
