There was a boat went over the Lake Palestine Spillway. 1 dead 1 injured. Witness said the boat driver never turned and went over the spillway. Sad deal.

Can't believe this has happened. There should be huge buoys out front. Prayers sent to all.

There are a lot of buoys 80+ yards in front of it that say "no boats".

Absolutely. I don't get it. I've been there a thousand times and don't really get how that could happen in daylight.

Alcohol involved?
That would be my guess.

Obviously I don't know exactly what happened here, but one way to miss "navigational aids" like buoys is to have your eyes glued to your electronics instead of the lake.

Could have had a stoke or heart attack but either way it's a bad deal

I was working at camp Longhorn on Inks when I was in college in 79. A lady was driving the boat pulling her husband on skis with no observer in the boat. She went over the spillway. He was waving trying to get her attention, and dropped off as the boat went over. All he had to do was drop and she would have naturally turned around, but you don't think logically in those situations. I taught water skiing so took the boat I had over the next day and you could see the boat crashed at the bottom of the spillway. It was a terrible feeling. That was almost 40 years ago.
