One man was pronounced dead and a woman was seriously injured in separate incidents that occurred within hours of each other Aug. 10 on Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported that at around 3 p.m. central time, two boats collided, and both occupants of one boat fell into the water. The driver of the other boat then ran over one the people in the water. The unidentified 20-year-old female sustained serious injuries.

About three hours later, the patrol responded to another incident that resulted in the death of Thomas Moore, 59, of St. Louis. According to the report, Moore was following a family member’s boat, and his boat was then seen adrift with no driver. Moore was found in the water and was pronounced dead on the scene.
