Grand Lake Accident

Updated:
DISNEY, Okla. (AP) _ A boating accident on Grand Lake has claimed the life of a Delaware County man.

The Oklahoma Lake Patrol says 53-year-old Robert Ketch of Jay was killed Thursday night when he was thrown from a 30-foot cabin cruiser that ran ashore in the Drowning Creek arm of the lake.

Ketch was driving the cruiser when it hit tree roots and ran head-on into a 12-foot cliff.

Grand River Dam Authority patrol officer Bruce Smith says the boat came to rest about eight feet from the shoreline.

Smith says the victim's wife was flown to Saint John Hospital in Tulsa. Fifty-one-year-old Lucy Ketch suffered numerous cuts and abrasions.
