Conservation Officers investigate hit-and-run boat accident on Geist Reservoir
Start Date: 6/24/2019 All Day
End Date: 6/24/2019
Event Description:
Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating a boat accident on Geist Reservoir in Marion County in which one boat left the scene.
At approximately 2:30 a.m. on Saturday, Randy L. Mathis, age 66 of Charlottesville, was anchored and fishing south of Geist Marina. He said he saw a boat exceeding the nighttime speed limit of 10 mph coming toward him from the rear. The other boat failed give way to Mathis’s boat, and a collision occurred. 

Mathis was thrown to the bottom of his boat and suffered bumps and bruises. He was taken to a local hospital by ambulance for precautionary measures. His boat sustained damage to the rear port (left) side. The boat that caused the collision fled the scene. Responding officers’ efforts to locate the fleeing boat were unsuccessful.

Due to the dark conditions, investigators have been unable to obtain a good description of the other vessel. They are looking for a boat that has damage toward the front, with black or maroon paint transfer. Anyone with information that could be useful to the investigation should contact Indiana Conservation Officer Central Dispatch at 812-837-9536.

Indiana Conservation Officers were assisted by Fishers Police Department.
