Boat wreck victims released from hospitals

Staff report
Three people injured in a weekend boating accident on High Rock Lake have been treated and released from area hospitals.
Two bass boats ran into each other Saturday in the main channel of the lake, said Sgt. Anthony Sharum of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission.
Four fishermen participating in the Wal-Mart FLW bass tournament were involved in the crash. Three of them were taken to area hospitals.
The boats collided after trying to avoid one another. They were both traveling more than 50 mph, Sharum said.
David Redman, of Lemon Tree Lane, Concord, was the owner and operator of one boat. He was taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center with injuries authorities described as not life-threatening.
His passenger, Darrell McManus of Hidden Grove Trail, Charlotte, was airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.
The owner of the second boat, Kernersville resident Tony Stafford, was not injured. His passenger, Kenneth Hutchins of Hamptonville, was taken to Rowan Regional complaining of shortness of breath and pain in his ribs.
Dave Washburn, communications vice president for FLW Outdoors, the group that hosted the tournament, confirmed Monday that all three men were released from the hospital.
No charges have been filed. Sharum noted that the only posted speed limit on the water is near a bridge and marina. Typically, operators observe speed limits similar to those on a roadway.
