Lake of the Ozarks, MO – Police have given a man another citation after video of a boating accident went viral.

The incident happened on August 24th during the Poker Run boat race on the Lake of the Ozarks and was captured by a Lake TV photographer. In the video you can see as the driver of a Fountain powerboat as he plows through a wake. The resulting collision causes the driver to plank at the speed of light, and his passengers to be violently tossed from side to side inside of the boat’s interior.

The driver, Marvin Carter, and four of his passengers were taken to area hospitals for moderate injuries. The two women seen in the video, a mother and daughter (rawr), declined treatment at the scene. One of the passengers suffered a broken leg, broken wrist and ruptured disc in his back.

Carter was initially cited with careless and imprudent operation, but after the video was posted to Youtube and went viral, police have cited Carter with a seating violation as well.

The Missouri Highway Patrol say the video going viral is possibly a good thing. “Unfortunately it’s the stories of the injury accidents, when they get out there, that people really start to pay attention,” Sgt. Jerry Callahan said. “We’re lucky all the passengers stayed in the boat.”

Callahan also added that the passengers were not required to wear life jackets and that there is no daytime speed limit on the lake. But that doesn’t mean they cannot cite you for speeding. “In Missouri we don’t have a daytime speed limit but that doesn’t mean you can drive your boat as fast as you want,” Callahan said.  “You have to look at the existing conditions and look at the boat traffic on the water.  Are there more boats?  In this instance, the waves.  The wakes.”

Here’s the video captured inside the boat:

And here is the Skrillex remix of the accident that had me and my co-workers laughing our asses off as we watched it 25 times in a row:

    “In Missouri we don’t have a daytime speed limit but that doesn’t mean you can drive your boat as fast as you want,” Callahan said. “You have to look at the existing conditions and look at the boat traffic on the water. Are there more boats? In this instance, the waves. The wakes.”

    OMG this “law” sounds sooooo southern (and north eastern and Delawarean) United States.

    For the victims and in the words of the poor black woman of the late night ambulance chasing attorney’s commercial: Get yourself a good attorney honey.

  • Cassy_Again

    Isn’t that the driver falling over? Can’t they cite him for not having control of the boat, leaving the wheel while the boat is in operation and negligence causing bodily harm due to those factors?

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    He got a citation. No different from going under the speed limit on the roads, but getting cited for driving to fast under conditions. His decision to go 100 mph into a wake that resulted in injuries is what resulted in home being rightfully cited for careless and imprudent operation. He’s an idiot and indicative of a lot of boat operators I experience when out on our lakes..

  • slavesher

    If you can get through something like that and not fall out of your bikini top, Your boobs are just not big enough.

  • Sam

    A SEATING violation? Wtf is that?

  • AssWho?

    God I love that video. Makes me laugh so hard …

  • Abroad

    The mother and daughter are looking good, all things considered. Loving the sunglasses that suddenly erupt over the side into the water in the video. And the stupid driver (no way is he a captain!) slamming across the front of the screen is just desserts.

  • David

    Looks like he did it on purpose… to have the mother/daughter tandem to fall on top of him. Well played, boatdriver… well played.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Yep, it’s reckless assholes like Marvin that create the Angela Bakers of the world…

  • JohnQknowitall

    He is actually an asshole, but the decision to punish someone should be in the hands of elected legislators and not the police. I think the guy is a totally selfish ass wipe and I think his punishment should come from a civil suit.

  • Coyote

    Riding on the bow, gunwales, railing, top of seat back and decking over the back of a motorboat is prohibited…the more you know.

    Ooooooh SHIT SON!!! pull it back pull it back!

  • NY_Mommy

    I watched this video repeatedly. It is epically awesome! I even made my boss and coworker (there are a whopping 3 of us at work) watch. I love how they are trying to look good cuz the cameras are rolling. Even trying to keep their cool when it 1st gets rocky but they hold on tight and don’t break stride cuz the cameras are rolling. But when the driver falls over, all hell breaks loose. This video will probably be featured on Ridiculousness one day. And the Skrillex remix, forgetaboutit!

    So by your logic, if I decide to take a turn too fast on an icy road, on purpose, then lose control and get into an accident that injures others — I shouldn’t be sited for reckless driving?

  • JohnQknowitall

    Nope. By my logic and in a car – your example would fall under actual Missouri laws: http://www.trafficviolationlawfirms.com/resources/traffic-tickets/moving-violations/missouri-reckless-driving-laws

  • JGo555

    I love how at 0:36 the captain just planks while everyone else loses their cool.

    This man was cited under Missouri speeding laws. Do you even read the articles? Here, let me repeat what the officer stated:

    “In Missouri we don’t have a daytime speed limit but that doesn’t mean you can drive your boat as fast as you want,” Callahan said. “You have to look at the existing conditions and look at the boat traffic on the water. Are there more boats? In this instance, the waves. The wakes.”

    That is why the man was cited with with careless and imprudent operation. Boaters on Missouri lakes have to follow the same basic speed laws set in that state for motor vehicles. Even though there was no speed limit set during the day, the law still states that “failing to exercise necessary care to prevent the endangerment of life, limb or property is reckless and careless operation of a vehicle” is prohibited and a violation of this can result in a careless and imprudent operation citation.

  • come_and_see

    lol, this is classic. He looks like a tree falling or somebody hung over waking up in the morning.

  • Guest

    Look again. Girlfriend in the yellow bathing suit goes to the right, and the glasses whip off her head, and get knocked back -into- the boat by the wave. Made me laugh because all I thought was “well, she’ll have the sunglasses to cover the black eye from bouncing her pretty cheekbone off the boat side.”

  • JohnQknowitall

    Well I must be stupid because I did read it again and got In Missouri we don’t have a daytime speed limit but that doesn’t mean you can drive your boat as fast as you want., but no mention of basic speed laws since there appear to be no defined speed laws – even though he is “guilty” of this blanket statement. What is the law?

    I have to agree with you on this one John. No speed limit, you shouldn’t getting citing for speeding….I am all for reckless endangerment!

    Copied and pasted from The Handbook of Missouri Boating Laws
    and Responsibilities:

    Improper Speed or Distance

    A proper speed or
    distance must be maintained while operating a motorboat or PWC or while towing
    a person on water skis or any similar device. Specifically, it is illegal to:

    Operate a motorboat or PWC at speeds that may cause
    danger, injury, damage, or unnecessary inconvenience. Be aware of and obey
    all regulatory markers, including those marked as “idle speed”
    or “no wake.”

    “failing to exercise necessary care to prevent the endangerment of life, limb or property is reckless and careless operation of a vehicle” is prohibited and a violation of this can result in a careless and imprudent operation citation.

  • JohnQknowitall

    So is this enforced only when something goes wrong or subjectively by the police? Where is the code written and identified?

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    Jesus Christ, John, I’m not a cop. More than enough info has been given so that any logical person can easily see that recklessly driving a boat, especially if it causes injuries, can result in getting a ticket. If you need to know more specifics than that, call the Missouri Highway Patrol and ask them yourself. For that username, you sure do ask a lot of questions. :P

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    He didn’t get a ticket for speeding, he got a ticket for recklessly driving the boat.

    Oops, my bad! Seating /speeding….I must’ve misread, since I have never heard of a seating violation but have had multiple speeding violations ;-D

  • LeaveMeBe

    I watched the remix video about a dozen times when it first came out and I laughed sofaking hard! I’m laughing myself silly right now just from seeing the picture.

  • Paul Pitts

    If you really want to see something good, pull up the full length video. It’s about 7 minutes. Wait until the ‘driver’ manages to pull himself up off the deck and begins to wail about his back…lol!!
