Indiana conservations officers say John Preston, 19, of Indianapolis, was driving the boat with 10 passengers on board when he struck a stopped boat near the mouth of the cove carrying McCordsville couple William and Sherry Lambert.

Sherry Lambert received treatment for minor injuries at Community North Hospital and was released. The passengers in Preston’s boat were thrown from the boat into the water, but none were injured. Conservation officers cited five of the passengers for being minors in possession of alcohol.

Preston and boat passenger Philip Paligraf, 18, of Fishers, were each arrested after fleeing the scene of the accident on foot. Preston was charged with boating while intoxicated resulting in bodily injury, fleeing the scene of an accident and minor consumption of alcohol. Paligraf’s charges included fleeing the scene of an accident, resisting law enforcement and minor consumption of alcohol.
