Boating accident injures two men on Belle River

Boating accident injures two men on Belle River

Jan 17, 2011

BELLE RIVER — Two men were injured in a boating accident Sunday morning in Belle River when their motor struck an underwater log, detached and flew into the boat, striking those on board, according to an Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office news release.

The accident happened about 7:41 a.m. in the river, which separates St. Martin and Assumption parishes, as the men were on their way to go hunting, the release said.

The projectile motor crushed the hand of the vessel’s driver — Derek Domingue, 26, 119 Leonie St., Pierre Part, and slashed the ankle of Kenneth Landry Jr., 37, 6928 La. 1, Belle Rose, the release said.

When the men failed to join the rest of their hunting group, another boat went searching for them, the release said.

The men and their 15-foot aluminum skiff were found along the shore, the release said.

The men were transported to a boat landing and brought to a hospital for treatment, the release says. The injuries are not life-threatening, the release said.
