GIBSON, La. (AP) - Wildlife and Fisheries agents say a 38-year old Gonzales man died after the boat he was operating crashed into a bank in Barge Canal near Bob's Bayou Black Marina in Gibson.
Adam Einck, a Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries spokesman, tells The Advocate Buddy Ray Poche was at the controls of a bass boat about 11 a.m. Saturday when he lost control, causing the boat to crash into some trees and cypress knees along the bank.
Einck says Poche was the only person in the boat at the time of the crash.
