Austin Boat Accident Lawyer. The last thing you want to think about on a fun day out on the lake are the potential dangers you could encounter. Whether you’re going out on a private boat , a rented jet ski, or a company operated barge, boat and drowning accident injuries can happen.

Two passengers, one with a skull fracture and the other who needs a lower arm amputation, were flown to the hospital. Others with less serious injuries were transported to the hospital after they reached the shore. According to the press release, four of the passengers sustained serious or near fatal injuries.

After the incident was called into authorities, Conservation Officer Jake Carlile sent a patrol boat out toward the out-of-control boat while residents on the shore were alerted to clear the area in case the boat took a turn toward the beach.

As the boat thrashed in the water, it crashed into the dock and then into Carlile’s patrol boat. Carlile was able to toss a rope into the water and entangle the runaway boat’s propellor, according to the press release. Once the boat slowed down, Carlile was able to jump aboard and turn the boat’s engine off.

Dominique Effinger, 20, was operating the 21-foot boat when she allegedly took a sharp turn at an unsafe speed and launched all 10 passengers into the water, according to the release. Effinger was arrested for boating while intoxicated causing injury and being a minor in possession of alcohol.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
