A powerboat crashed into a canoe on Lake Winnipesaukee this past Friday afternoon. State police say an Idaho man had to jump into the water to avoid being hit by a motorboat in the area between Rattlesnake and Sleepers Island in Alton. Authorities say the operator, a 74-year-old man from Massachusetts, was going about 30 mph when his 20-foot Centurion hit the canoe. Luckily Fifty-year-old Robert Cavallaro of Driggs, Idaho, suffered only minor injuries. The investigation is still on going and alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
