This is indeed sad and tragic.

Last January, I served on a jury in Elmore County for a similar “accident” that occurred on Lake Jordan in July 2006. The circumstances were almost identical. A pontoon boat was rear-ended by a speed boat with the driver BUI. There was also one fatality in that case. It was a difficult and heart breaking task to have to listen to the details of the crash as they were brought out in court. In the end, there was a grieving family whom had lost a loved member. And the responsible young man that realized the consequences of his actions would play terrible images in his mind for the rest of his life. He received 18 months but he will never be the same.

There are no winners in this scenario only sorrowful family and friends. These situations are fully avoidable. They do not just happen without careless decisions having been made.

Praying for all involved realizing that except for God’s grace, there go I.
