On Saturday afternoon at Lake Havasu, a hit and run boating accident took the life of one man from Orange County. The victim of the boating accident, 30-year-old Eric Norris, was tubing in the lake behind a boat when he fell into the water. Floating near the point of his fall, waiting to be picked up, Norris was struck by another boat passing by.
The boat continued moving after striking and killing Norris, not stopping to check if he was hurt or in need of help. This action by the boat’s driver qualifies this boating accident as a hit and run, which is an accident in which a driver leaves the scene without properly consulting with the other parties involved.
Authorities say they are still looking for the boat driver who committed the hit and run. Any information relevant to the case should be sent to the San Bernardino county police.
