Just announced this morning on Sacramento news, drunk driver plows boat into other boats killing two and injuring two, still searching for missing people. The SacBee reported it as a ski boat. People never learn, sure hope it wasn't anyone from this community on either side.

No sympathy for drunk boaters - it's too chaotic out there. I vote for a long prison term.

I dont see how you can get obligerantly drunk when you know you have to drive the boat back. Thats a sad deal and I agree, he should go to jail for a very long time

I'm sure he will, he's been arrested on two counts of manslaughter to start. I'll bet that will be upgraded after all the tests and facts are in.

Dang sad. People need to boat responsibly. Thoughts and prayers go out to the families and the injured.

ENGLEBRIGHT LAKE—

A boat accident on Englebright Lake in between Yuba and Nevada counties Saturday night has claimed the lives to two people.
Two other people were sent to the hospital, one with minor to moderate injuries.
It’s reported that the accident was the result of a high speed collision between two boats on the manmade lake, however, the cause is still said to be under investigation.

Divers from Nevada County, along with units from the Yuba County Sheriff’s Department and the Army Corps of Engineers responded to the scene.
Sunday, deputies identified 53-year-old Jeffrey Sandow as a suspect arrested for crashing into another boat. Sandow was allegedly drunk when he struck the other boat around 6:30 p.m.

Wow that's horrible! The perp looks like a redneck alcoholic in the mug shot. He just ruined a lot of lives including his own.

News reporter says "A reminder that the last rides of summer can be just as dangerous as the first"

Wow, that some poetic insight there!
