BULLHEAD CITY, AZ (MOHAVE COUNTY) – A man from California was fatally hurt in an alleged hit-and-run boating crash in Bullhead City on the Fourth of July, according to FOX 10 Phoenix.
The crash occurred on the Colorado River as 33-year-old Timothy Randall David Lee, of Ontario, Cali., was riding on a boat’s swim deck. The boat was then struck by two teenagers riding a personal watercraft. The teens then fled the scene.
Lee was taken to the hospital in Bullhead City, and from there was airlifted to another hospital in Las Vegas. He later succumbed to his extensive injuries and was pronounced dead.
Two other people, Lee’s mother-in-law and his infant child, were also sent into the water during the crash. Luckily, they were not hurt in the accident.
Authorities later located the 16-year-old operator of the watercraft, identified as a boy from Avondale, Arizona.
The teen received a citation for violating a rental contract and failing to use proper caution to avoid a crash. Further charges may also be pending.
