Effinger was arrested on charges of boating while intoxicated causing injury and being a minor in possession of alcohol. The boat continued to travel around Lake Gage, causing property damage and serious injuries, according to police.

According to Indiana Conservation Officers, four of the people suffered serious injuries, with one passenger suffering a fractured skull and another having the lower part of their arm amputated in the accident.

The 21-foot boat ran amok in lake Gage, at about 30 miles per hour, after the driver and 9 others were thrown off Sunday. He was also accused of possessing alcohol.

The boat kept spinning around after the driver made a quick turn. Among the 10 people injured in the incident, four were severely wounded.


The DNR press release said that several of the injured that were in the lake were "immediately transported" to the shore by citizens and emergency resonders.

In the video footage, the boat is seen racing around in circles as officers try to corral it. The incident took place Saturday around 7:13 p.m. EDT, following which the officers received a 911 call to the spot.

Conservation Officer Jake Carlile launched a DNR Boston Whaler patrol boat as Steuben County Sheriff's Deputies alerted residents on the shore to move their docked boats and clear the area as the unmanned boat circled by the shoreline at speed, getting closer to boats and docks with each pass. Carlile was able to wrangle the boat, but it struck a pier and then rear-ended Carlile's boat.

The entangling rope eventually slowed the runaway boat and Carlile was able to use a nearby personal watercraft and he jumped onto the runaway boat. Others less seriously hurt were taken to Cameron Memorial Community Hospital in Angola. She told NewsChannel 15 in IN her husband escorted a paramedic in order to help the injured people thrown off into the water via a jet ski.
