Fannin County, GA — June 12, 2017, David Payseur was killed and Deborah Brooks was injured after alleged Boating Under the Influence led to an accident.
Details surrounding the accident have been released by the Law Enforcement Division Department of Natural Resources. They report that the incident happened on Lake Blue Ridge.
Initial reports indicate that 47-year-old Payseur and 48-year-old Brooks were both on separate inner-tubes which were being towed on the water. The driver of the boat, 44-year-old Chad Philip Haase, somehow drove too close to the shore, and the two in-tow crashed onto the shoreline.
Due to injuries sustained in the crash, Payseur died at the scene of the accident. Brooks was transported to Fannin Regional Hospital, then eventually to Erlanger Medical Center for further treatment.
Authorities placed Haase under arrest after the accident, and he currently faces several charges, including Boating Under the Influence.
No further information is currently available.
