LAKE WYLIE --
A boat carrying at least two people on Lake Wylie slammed into a dock twice and caused about $6,000 damage to a boat moored there, according to a report from the York County Sheriffs Office.
Lyndsay Niederhuth of 412 Lafinca Court reported that she was inside a home on the lake on June 19 when she heard a boat traveling at what sounded like a high rate of speed on the lake. She heard a loud noise and went out to see that a boat had collided with a corner of a dock, the report said.
Niederhuth said she saw the people in the boat push the craft away from the dock and attempt to continue into the cove, where they hit another corner of the dock, the report said. She said she heard laughing from the board and a man saying not to say anything to anybody.
The boat continued into the cove until she couldnt see it, the report said.
Another witness, Jerry Garrison of 4142 Charlotte Hwy., reported that he heard the suspects boat hit the dock one time, then saw it hit the dock a second time before it came into the cove and pulled into a slip, the report said. Garrison said a man and a woman got out of the boat and walked into the woods, the report said.
Matthew Speagle of 110 Allison St., who owns the boat that was hit by the suspects, reported the damage totaled about $6,000, the report said. He said the back side of the boat was damaged, according to the report.
The S.C. Department of Natural Resources was notified of the incident, the report said.
