Commentary on Ned Baron, Julie Baron Boat Accident in Freeport

Authorities in the news are right to say that a boat without its lights on is very dangerous, but I can't help but wonder how they're looking into that claim. I can't imagine why someone would have their lights off out on the water, though some people make mistakes. It's also worth considering other explanations.

Could it be the boat was having electrical issues or otherwise became disabled? Could it be the lights burned out at an inopportune time? Maybe whatever source told authorities about the lack of lights was mistaken. Likely or not, proper investigations will consider all kinds of possibilities. At the end of the day, two people aren't around to tell their side of the story. It's worth taking steps to make sure someone is.
