LAKE KABETOGAMA, MN (KDAL) - The St. Louis County Sheriff's Department is investigating a boating accident that happened Monday morning on Lake Kabetogama in Voyageurs National Park. Two boats, each with several passengers, were heavily damaged when they collided. The boat operators and passengers escaped injury in the crash. The investigation showed a boat operated by Donald Murphy of Des Moines, Iowa was headed north on the lake and failed to notice an eastbound boat being operated by Michael Snyder of Lake Kabetogama. Evasive action taken by Snyder at the last moment helped to lessen the severity of the collision.
