Default Miami Boat Hit & Run Fatality

Didnít see this posted elsewhere. Not terribly surprising but still very unfortunate.

Terrible!! How can 12 people on a boat leave a human being to meet his fate alone without calling for help. Donít get it.

Someone on board will run their low IQ mouth on social media.

Born and raised Cuban and we all know the crowd. Even no name harbor has turned into a Miami sh,T show. Billy’s point also.

The article, and comments assume that the boat hit the jet ski. More likely, it was the other way around. That said, it makes leaving the scene even more indefensable.

Agreed, skis are the crotch rockets on the water and thatís coming from a former sport bike rider. Odds are alcohol and/drugs on board and didnít want to risk that.

I know exactly what you mean, but someone, and probably most people on that boat knew that they hit a wave runner. There's no way to hit an object that large without knowing it.

My young adult son pilots our boat skillfully. He's been boating since he was 11. He completed the Coast Guard course when he was 12. We see some poor boating skills and equally bad etiquette down here in the lower Keys, but this is nothing. I ran the boat up to Miami a few weeks ago and let him take the wheel so he could truly see lousy boating skills in action. Boats throwing 3' wake in no wake zones; guys running over your anchor line 20' from your boat at 30 knots in a "no wake" zone; etc. The real fun was over that short stretch of ICW waters from Rickenbacker Causeway to Bayside. We saw a half dozen near misses in half an hour.

I don't believe for a second that everyone in the boat in the accident talked about on this thread didn't realize that they had hit a jet ski. This looks like a pretty clear case of leaving the scene of an accident with injuries. The reasons for stooping so low are mentioned by others in the posts above. A skipper intoxicated in any way who killed someone would be looking at manslaughter.

Miami boating borders on out-of-control dangerous. I think I'll continue to limit my Miami boating to Matheson Hammock south.

They knew; you don't hit a 400+ pound jet ski plus a person and not know it. These are the same type of scum bags who will pull their frigging phones out and video an assault or accident rather than help. They have no respect for anyone or thing.....Born and raised in Miami and now could not spend more than a day there, and it gets worse each year. Friends still left there are only there for work or family. Unfortunately, many of these scumbags are now moving north. There are still plenty of good people there but slowly but surely they are being outnumbered.

They hit each other, and the boat got hit in the right side. Any court would attribute blame to both, with the majority of blame on the boat which was the give-way vessel.

What if the ski was approaching from behind and thought he could cut in front of them and ran into the side of the boat?
None the less, leaving the scene will seal the boaters fate.

If the "captain" was wasted, wouldn't he be facing lesser charges bc its pretty hard to prove sobriety after the fact, even if someone on the boat said in court the driver was impaired?

Then the jetskier sealed his own fate I guess. My point here was the same as the other thread: yes, jetskiers are a menace, but not all. On the water both parties have an obligation to avoid collision (yes yes, unless you are piloting a supertanker through Dunedin pass) but our immediate conclusion is "must have been the jet ski." Sometimes it isn't, and I rather suspect this might be one of them given the boat driver fled the scene (you don't tend to do that if you think yourself blameless).

Yesterday they pulled out two dead bodies in the same area. They had fallen off a boat at some point and drown. Miami on the water has become straight up tragic.

Boating during the weekend in Miami is out of control, too many idiots on the water with no idea of the regulations.
Better stay south, the PWC ban in Biscayne National Park helps.

I was out this weekend. We decided to go up Biscayne Bay into Miami River to get lunch. In my 6 years living and boating in Miami, I've never seen so many boats and so much chaos. People running on plane across channels in no-wake zones, jet skis zig-zagging within feet of boats, etc. I told my wife we're never heading north of Rickenbacker bridge on a weekend again.
