Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission officials continue to investigate a New Year’s Eve accident in which a 42-foot HCB center console struck a Dania Beach jetty.

The boat hit the jetty at the entrance to Port Everglades Inlet just after midnight, ejecting two of the four people on board, according to published reports. One person was seriously injured and remains hospitalized.

ABC affiliate WPLG reported that the people on board were identified as Daniel Towriss, 47, of Zionsville, Ind.; Cassidy Rudman, 25, of Indianapolis; and Lauran Silagy, 32, and Jarren Silagy, 39, of McCordsville, Ind.

Towriss is president of the Delaware Life Insurance and owns a waterfront mansion in Fort Lauderdale, according to the news report.

HCB and the dealer that sold the boat, Plantation Boat Mart in Tavernier, Fla., declined comment.
