Marine Patrol urges caution after crashes
New Hampshire Marine Patrol officials have been busy responding to crashes this weekend, and they’re reminding boaters to be careful.
Marine Patrol, the state police and local authorities all responded Saturday night when two boats collided on Lake Winnipesaukee in Alton. Officials said one person was hurt when two powerboats crashed about 9:30 p.m.
Alcohol was not a factor in that crash, but officials said it was in a second crash that happened a few hours later on Lake Winnisquam in Laconia. Marine Patrol said Richard Degregory, 51, of Tyngsboro, Mass., was charged with boating with intoxicated after he crashed a boat going 20 mph into a tree on shore. Two passengers received minor injuries in the accident.
