MANNING (AP) — The Natural Resources Department has arrested a man in a Lake Marion boat crash last month that killed a University of South Carolina student.
Capt. Robert McCullough told local media outlets that 38-year-old Chad Morris has been charged with reckless homicide and failure to render aid. Authorities said he left the scene without helping.
Twenty-one-year-old Hailey Joanne Bordeaux of Sumter died in the crash after the boat she was on was hit by another boat on the lake July 4.
McCullough said Bordeaux was with her boyfriend and two others in a boat stopped at a landing when the crash occurred just before 1 a.m. No one else was hurt.
It was unclear whether Morris has an attorney.
