Officials searching for suspect in hit-and-run boat accident

Indiana Conservation Officers are asking for the public’s help in finding the suspect in a hit-and-run accident involving a boat on Lake Wawasee.

The incident happened on Wednesday, September 23rd around 1:00 a.m.

According to witnesses, there was a loud crash at Pier 52 off of Ogden Point Road and two men were heard talking.

The boat quickly left the scene. It caused thousands of dollars worth of property damage to the pier.
