Indiana Conservation Officers, Steuben County Sheriff's Department, Steuben County EMS, Orland Fire Dept., and Parkview Samaritan Helicopter responded to the scene.

A runaway boat caused property damage and injured 10 people on Lake Gage in IN on July 15.

A 20-year-old Fort Wayne woman was arrested Saturday evening for boating while intoxicated, according to Indiana DNR Law Enforcement.

According to Indiana Conservation Officers, four of the people suffered serious injuries, with one passenger suffering a fractured skull and another having the lower part of their arm amputated in the accident. Alcohol was a factor in the crash, they said.

Others with less serious injuries were transported to Cameron Memorial Hospital in Angola.

Initial information from investigating Conservation Officers shows that Dominique Effinger, 20 of Ft. Steuben County Sheriff's Department officers also alerted people on shore to move their docked boats and to clear the area because the unmanned boat kept moving closer to docks and other boats as it circled around and around by the shoreline, conservation officers reported.

The boat was a Correct Craft Ski Ski Nautique, according to the DNR officials, NewsChannel 15 reported. It spun out of control, crashed into a dock, and then ran into the boat of Conservation Officer Jake Carlisle. The boat reportedly then continued circling in the lake at about 30 miles per hour without anyone aboard. The boat struck a dock and diverted it's direction into the rear of the patrol boat Carlile was operating, disabling the patrol boat's motor due to the impact.

Carlile was able to throw a rope from his patrol boat to tangle up the propeller of the runaway boat, the report said.

When the watercraft hit the patrol boat though, it slowed the engine, and one of the officers was able to hop aboard and stop the boat.
