A boat crash on the Lake of the Ozarks takes the life of a 61-year old man. The Missouri Highway Patrol says on Friday night, a boat driven by James Koch of High Ridge was going upstream at the four mile mark of the Big Niangua arm. The boat hit some sort of fixed object in the water and crashed. Koch was pronounced dead a short time later by the Camden County coroner. The Highway Patrol was assisted at the scene by the Mid County Fire Department and Camden County ambulance.
