Comments Off

Two people traveling on a family boat at Skaneateles Lake in New York were tragically killed when they were hit head-on by another boat driven by someone allegedly under the influence of alcohol.

At first it was believed that Brian Cordes, 25, was driving the boat. But, Onondaga County Sheriff’s deputies found that Cordes was covering for his brother, Craig Cordes, who was allegedly drunk behind the wheel of their boat.

Craig Cordes is charged with two counts of vehicular manslaughter and boating while intoxicated.

His brother Brian faces a charge of hindering prosecution.

One of the victims of the boating accident was a police officer from Richmond, Virginia
