A boating accident occurred early Thursday morning of last week on Normandy Lake.
Two occupants received minor injuries from the crash. One victim showed up at United Regional Medical Center on Thursday around 1pm. That's when the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency was notified.
Agent Tim Hancock says that it appears the vessel struck the Anthony Bridge (Fire Lake Bridge) and veered off and hit the bank. The two occupants were thrown from the ski boat into the water. The vessel then sank.
Authorities were able to identified and later accounted for the occupants. The TWRA and Coffee County Rescue Squad recovered the boat and remain in possession of vessel until the investigation is completed. As of Monday (5/18/15), the investigation is still ongoing.
