Timothy E. Klingler crashed his 21-foot 2000 Malibu outboard motorboat into a stone pier, leaving the craft partially wedged on the pier.
The 52-year-old Klingler was taken to the Moses Ludington Hospital in Ticonderoga, New York, by Hague EMS, where he was reportedly treated for chest and head injuries. He was later transferred to Fletcher Allen Trauma Center in Burlington, Vermont, for further treatment.
The Hague Fire Department, Horicon Fire Department Dive team and Ticonderoga Fire Department Dive team worked together at the scene to confirm that no other person had been thrown into the water during the boat accident. The crews determined that Klingler was the only person on board the boat at the time of the incident.
Warren County Sheriff's deputies told the Albany Times-Union that the investigation into the boat accident was ongoing.
