He was taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
He was injured when hit by a car leaving the Puyallup boat on the Kingston-Edmonds Ferry run. The car also hit the inner wall of the Puyallup ferry causing a delay in the offloading of the boat.
Arrangements had to be made to tow the car off the boat, resulting in a canceled trip from Edmonds.
Boat Accident Fatality statistics state that 85% of fatalities occur on boats less than 26 feet in length. Boaters under 12 and between the ages of 40 and 49 had the highest number of fatalities by age group.
If you have been injured in a boating accident caused by a reckless party, it would be in your best interest to contact a Bellevue boat accident lawyer who can recover the highest settlement from insurance companies or others at fault in the accident.
