Following the deadly crash, the two people aboard the cigarette boat abandoned their vessel and left the scene, DNR spokesman Mark McKinnon told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. They were later found at a nearby home, and the driver of the boat is believed to have been under the influence at the time of the wreck, McKinnon said.
No arrests have been made, but McKinnon said DNR investigators will reconstruct the collision to determine exactly what happened. That investigation could take two to three months.
