Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division agents are asking the public for information about a boating hit and run that occurred on the Amite River Diversion Canal at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, July 26, in Livingston Parish.
A ski boat was rear ended and ran over by another ski boat. The boat that was hit did have its running lights on at the time of the incident.
According to an eyewitness near the Tiki Hut, a yellow and white ski boat with a black stripe was seen speeding through a wake zone. Agents believe that the yellow and white ski boat may have been the boat that was involved with this incident and that it should have substantial damage to the hull.
The three passengers of the boat that was run over were treated for minor injuries and released.
Agents are looking for the yellow and white ski boat that left the scene of the incident without stopping.
If anyone has information about this incident, they should call LDWF's Operation Game Thief hotline at 1-800-442-2511 or use the LADWF Tips app on their smart phones.
