Colorado River Boat Accident Kills Woman, Injures Others

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on July 2, 2011 - Comments off

21-year-old Los Angeles County resident Brittany Stark was killed and two other suffered serious injuries in Colorado River boating accident on June 26, 2011, around 10:26 p.m. According to San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Officials, the Ski Centurion was being driven at about 25 mph by 20-year-old Gregory Kettlekamp when it hit the shore and stopped abruptly. Several of the passengers were ejected out of the ski boat.
Stark was immediately transported to La Paz Regional Medical Center where she was later pronounced dead. The other two injured victims were airlifted to Good Samaritan Hospital to receive medical treatment for the injuries suffered.
Now the investigating officers need to determine whether there was a mechanical failure or Kettlekamp was driving negligently. It is still unknown if alcohol was a contributing factor to this collision.
If it is found that Kettlekamp is responsible for the accident, then he may be held liable for Stark’s wrongful death and injuries suffered by others. It would be in the best interest of Stark’s family members to seek counsel from a San Bernardino County boating accident lawyer to know about their legal rights and options. An experienced lawyer will help the victims and their family members obtain compensation to cover funeral costs, medical costs, loss of anticipated income, loss of love and companionship, and other accident-related damages.
Our law office offers sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved Stark for such a tragic loss. We also hope and pray that the injuries suffered by the other passengers heal soon.

On a sunny holiday weekend, it is the perfect time to break out the barbeque grill and sail around the San Diego Bay or one of the many reservoirs surrounding San Diego. It is so relaxing to spend some quality time with the friends and family on the calm waters. Though, with about 900,000 vessels registered in California, these areas tend to get congested. What was supposed to be a boater’s paradise may turn into a nightmare when boat operators and passengers do not follow California boating regulations. Injuries and accidents happen because of this negligence.
