Shootout Crash Leaves Two In Serious Condition

boating accident

An early run on Saturday at the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout at Captain Ron’s left two drivers in serious condition after their boat flipped while going 179 miles per hour. The incident occurred during the 10 am hour of racing when 47 year old Joel Begin and 44 year old Michael Fiore were making their first run in a brand new 2015 42 foot Outer Limits Catamaran. The boat reached up to 179 miles per hour before becoming airborne just past the finish line and flipping over twice before landing bow first and coming to a rest end-over-end on the water. Begin was transported by Lake West Ambulance to Lake Regional Hospital and Fiore was transported by Air Ambulance to University Hospital in Columbia.
