No new leads reported in boating hit-and-run



The Cincinnati Enquirer

DAYTON, Ky. - Police said there were no new developments Monday in the case of the speedboat that crashed into another boat Friday night on the Ohio River.

Shortly before 11:30 p.m. Friday, a 40-foot-plus cigarette speedboat struck a smaller pleasure craft near the Queen City Riverboat landing, injuring six of the seven people aboard.

Witnesses reported that the speedboat stopped briefly on the Ohio side of the river at Schmidt Field, where a man got out and checked the damage to his vessel and then headed east.

Tim Suter, mayor of Moscow, told authorities he had seen a white, purple and yellow speedboat with a damaged motor being towed by a blue GMC truck on Saturday about 1 p.m. near a Moscow-area boat ramp.

The phrase "Snap Decision" was written on the boat, he said.

Anyone with information should call Dayton police at (859) 261-1471.
