Clayton man sentenced to probation for drunken boating accident that injured 5

McClatchy-Tribune Information Services

June 28–WATERTOWN — A Clayton man was sentenced Friday in Jefferson County Court to five years’ probation for causing serious injuries to three people while operating a boat while intoxicated.

Peter R. LaGrow, 66, of 419 James St., was also fined $ 500 and had his boating privileges suspended for a year after pleading guilty April 24 to second-degree vehicular assault and operating a vessel while under the influence of alcohol. He entered his pleas using an Alford plea, meaning he did not admit to the underlying facts in the case, but was pleading guilty to avoid the possibility of a harsher sentence if convicted of the crimes at trial.

Mr. LaGrow was operating a 23-foot boat on the St. Lawrence River off Clayton about 12:45 a.m. on Aug. 21, 2011, when the boat struck a shoal near the Eagle Wing group of shoals and small islands. According to an indictment handed up in October, Mr. LaGrow was operating the boat with a blood alcohol content of 0.11 percent, above the state’s minimum legal level of 0.08 percent considered proof of intoxication.

In all, five passengers, as well as M…………… continues on Insurance News Net

OKC Family Helpless After Fatal Hit-And-Run Boating Accident

Oklahoma City, OK -

An Oklahoma City family said they feel helpless in the wake of a deadly boating accident last summer.

The boater who reportedly crashed into their loved ones is not facing charges, suing him is pointless and the medical bills are mounting.

“It all falls on us,” Tonia Foster said.

Foster’s father, Gary McIninch, was killed on Lake Eufaula on July 4 in a hit-and-run collision.

Two of Foster’s daughters were injured and had to be flown to the hospital. The youngest cut up her head and needed stitches. The middle daughter broke her leg, so she had to have rods inserted and learn how to walk again.

Now nearly $ 200,000 later, Foster feels like the man who caused everything is getting off free – financially and criminally.

Families in San Diego yacht race accident appear headed for wrongful death …
News from Contra Costa Times:

Two South Bay families who grieved together following the deaths of a captain and his crewman in a San Diego yacht race are headed for what might be a contentious court battle over money.

Already, family members have sparred on Facebook and in Internet postings following the filing of court paperwork that could lead to a wrongful death lawsuit.

“It is so sad to me that we can no longer share friendly brunches together,” Anna Mavromati wrote in a blog posting last week.

Mavromati’s father, Theofanis Mavromatis, 49, captained the boat found in pieces floating April 28 off the Coronado Islands.

“For the record, my dad is not responsible for anyone’s death, including his own,” the daughter said.

The hostile exchanges online occurred last week after the family of crewman Kevin Rudolph, 53, served the Mavromatis family with papers petitioning a court to administer Mavromatis’ estate.

The men, along with William Reed Johnson Jr., 57, of Torrance, and Joseph Stewart, 64, of Bradenton, Fla., died during the Newport Beach-to- Ensenada regatta. Debris from Mavromatis’ boat, The Aegean, was found scattered in waters about eight miles off the Mexican coast.

The U.S. Coast Guard continues to investigate the crash to determine what happened and has not issued an official report. US Sailing, the sport’s governing body,…………… continues on Contra Costa Times

Dog, owner reunited after boat accident in Keys
News from Sacramento Bee:

A boating accident that separated an owner from her dog in the Florida Keys this weekend now has a happy ending.

A small boat hit a bridge piling near mile marker 60 on Saturday. Monroe County Sheriff’s officials said the driver of the boat and her dog were both thrown from the water. Other people onboard the boat suffered minor injuries.

The woman was rescued but the dog, a yellow lab, was missing.

Employees from nearby Sundance Watersports jumped on wave runners and went searching for the dog and eventually brought him to shore and reunited him with his owner.

Interest In Boating Safety Issues Spurred By Accident Claiming Three Lives

Interest In Boating Safety Issues Spurred By Accident Claiming Three Lives
News from Oyster Bay Enterprise Pilot:

The hope is to create better safety on the water through education

Long Islanders are still mourning the deaths of three children who died in a boating accident aboard the Kandi Won on July Fourth in Oyster Bay Harbor. It has spurred elected officials to look into boating safety. United States Senator Charles E. Schumer, joined by the parents of Long Island boating victim, Victoria Gaines, called on the United States Coast Guard to require capacity limits for recreational boats over 20 feet in length and require that those limits be visibly posted onboard to educate and warn operators and their passengers of the vessels’ total passenger capabilities and weight load. 

“In the memory of the children we lost on that awful day, we can take some simple steps to educate and warn boat owners and their passengers how many people a vessel can safely handle,” said Senator Schumer. “It doesn’t make much sense that we require capacity limits to be posted for most everything from ballrooms to classrooms, and boats under 20 feet in size, but not recreational vessels over 20 feet.”

Authorities Stress Boating Safety Following Fatal River Accident
News from Patch.com:

An Aliquippa woman was killed and a Robinson Township man injured following a jet ski accident Sunday on the Ohio River.

Melissa Mason, 24, of Aliquippa and Kevin Ludwig, 26, of Robinson Township were both rushed to Heritage Valley Sewickley hospital shortly after 4 p.m. Sunday. 

Ludwig was treated and released before 7 p.m. while Mason was pronounced dead at a Pittsburgh hospital, according to Lawrence P. Furlong, assistant supervisor of the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s Bureau of Law Enforcement.

Carnival, Tourism Industry, Insurers Count Cost of Cruise Ship Accident

Carnival, Tourism Industry, Insurers Count Cost of Cruise Ship Accident
News from Insurance Journal:

The cruise ship industry faces an uphill task to restore confidence among customers spooked by images of the stricken Costa Concordia flipped on its side in Italian waters on Monday and could suffer a hit to sales in a key booking period.

Carnival, the owner of the cruise ship that capsized off Italy’s west coast, said it alone expected to take a hit of around $ 90 million from Friday’s accident just as a result of the boat being out of use for the rest of the year.

“The long-term consequences for the cruise industry could be significant. This accident could have a significant impact in terms of trading because we’re in the peak-season for reservations,” said Natixis analyst Geoffrey d’Halluin.

The first quarter is a critical booking period across the tourism industry and the images are unlikely to encourage holidaymakers already facing tough economic headwinds to opt for a cruise.

“I think it’s going to be horrid, short term,” Numis analyst Wyn Ellis told Reuters. “There will be a definite short-term impact because it’s a key booking period and many people will be put off cruising in the short term.”

Travel industry analyst Mark Murphy said since cruise ship vacation industry is still in its infancy in the United States with only 20 percent of Americans having been on a cruise.
