Are there any updates on this boating accident on Lake Fork ? I launched there that day and came in at 5:45 p.m. I am afraid to even use that boat lane or launch since the accident. People are very lax in observing the No Wake Zone; as I witnessed when I launched earlier in this place. Was this alcohol related; excessive speed or what ? Please do a follow-up.
