LDWF looking for suspects in boating hit and run


Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division agents are looking for information from the public about a boating hit and run that happened on the Amite River Diversion Canal on July 26 in Livingston Parish.

It happened at around 8:30 p.m. A ski boat was rear ended and ran over by another ski boat.  Three passengers of the boat, which was struck, were treated for minor injuries and released.  Agents are looking for the other ski boat that left the scene without stopping. 

Witnesses say a yellow and white ski boat with a black stripe was seen speeding through a wake zone, just north of where the incident took place near the Tiki Hut.  Investigators believe that the yellow and white ski boat may have been the boat that was involved with this incident and that it should have heavy damage on the hull.

According first responders, the boat which was rear ended and ran over, did have its running lights on at the time of the incident.

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.
