Holy F3CK, that must have been going 36+mph to get up there, the damage, unreal. No one is dead, seems fantastically lucky.

Imagine that insurance call, well I was... well **** I was... tears, loud sobbing tears.

No captain should have to go through what this fella is now dealing with.

So...how much force do you think it takes to bend a steering wheel like that? That couldn't have felt good at all.

I think I read somewhere earlier today when I first saw the pics that it was alcohol related.

I'm pretty sure alcohol counts as serious neglect if it is the main cause.

No immediate mention of alcohol, but 4 people injured, 1 airlifted out.

DANDRIDGE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Officers with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency have opened an investigation into a boating accident on Douglas Lake that hurt four people.

Officers say that between 10:15 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Sunday night, a 2011 23-foot Mastercraft operated by Brandon Watson, 21, was traveling upstream from Douglas Dam in the area of Harbor Crest Condominiums and Cowboy's Seafood Restaurant when it hit one of the small islands near the TVA Big Island.

On the shoreline, witnesses told officers they heard the crash and found that the boat ran aground with four people onboard, one of which had been ejected.

Watson along with 21-year-old Blake Dutton, 21-year-old Emily Yow, and 19-year-old Taylor Creech were hurt in the incident and transported to UT Medical Center. Creech was airlifted for serious injuries. The TWRA reported that all are now in stable condition.

"A TWRA Investigator has documented evidence from the boat by using a 3D scanner and officers have released the boat back to the owner who was not involved in the incident," TWRA's Matt Cameron told WVLT News.

Records show Watson had passed a TWRA Boating Education Course as required by state law.

Wildlife officials said the incident remains under investigation.
