NATCHITOCHES, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries agents are investigating after a crash just south of Natchitoches launched a boat onto the riverbank.
Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the scene at 8:15 p.m. where they found a boat on the bank of the Cane River near the 2400 block of Fish Hatchery Rd.
Officials say the bass boat was traveling at high speed when it hit a wake, sending it airborne. The boat landed in the yard of a nearby home.
Despite how far the boat made it up the riverbank, deputies say no one was injured. There was only one person in the boat at the time.
The LDWF is investigating the cause of the crash.
