A Man From Maine Drives Boat Into Trees, Charged With OUI
A 44-year old man from Maine was charged with an OUI after he drove his boat aground into a set of trees while on the Kennebec river.
If you thought boating season was over, maybe it should be. According to WABI, a 44-year old man from Bowdoinham was charged with operating under the influence when the Maine Marine Patrol responded to a call and found his boat had run aground on the shore of the Kennebec river.
The accident happened in the early morning hours of October 30th and left two women injured with non-life-threatening injuries. The Maine Marine Patrol determined after an investigation that the operator of the boat had a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit.
The photos of the accident were shared on the Maine Marine Patrol Facebook page and show how significant the accident was. Additional charges could be added after further investigation.
