On August 24, a Maryland lawmaker was involved in a boating accident that left four children injured.
The accident happened after the lawmaker admitted that he had been consuming alcohol before operating his boat. He allegedly lost control of the boat, and crashed into a vessel that contained several children. Four of the children on the vessel were injured in the crash.
Three of the four children were treated for bruises and broken bones, and a 5-year-old girl sustained a skull fracture after she was thrown from the vessel due to the impact of the crash. The lawmaker was said to have had a BAC of 0.20, which is more than twice the legal limit. An investigation into the boating while intoxicated case is still underway.
