Sunday night about 9:15, near MM 7 near the north shore, a Bayliner traveling at a high rate of speed, ran into the stern of a pontoon boat while underway. All boats had running lights on. Thankfully, no serious injuries but EMS did respond.
We understand the operator was not from the lake and wasn’t familiar with his surroundings. NC Wildlife is investigating.
Even on a quiet evening during a cruise, keep your head on a swivel. We understand the white stern light was thought to be a house on the shore.
