A day on Lake Marion is a day that should be lots of fun, as long as all the boaters on the lake pay attention to other boaters sharing the lake with them. Sadly, boating wrecks do happen. Those wrecks can be very serious and can lead to death. That is exactly what happened in a boat crash that happened at the beginning of the month on Lake Marion.
The fatal accident happened at around 12:30 on a Friday morning, when two couples were sitting in a boat that was idling on the lake. A boat that was speeding on the lake slammed into the idling boat. One of the women on the boat was taken to a local hospital but succumbed to her injuries. It isn't clear if other injuries were suffered in the accident. While no charges have been filed yet, the Department of Natural Resources is investigating the accident.
