Here’s the latest on last night’s deadly boating crash on Lake Tapps.


Investigators have cleared the scene and will be conducting follow up work today.


Officer Tony Rice said the number of injured is unusual. There hasn’t been a boating accident with that number of casualties in a while.


Here’s a map of the location. Note the locator icon is on Interlake Island but the crash occurred in the waterway between Interlake and Inlet islands.












UPDATE:
The victim who died has been identified as Ronald Scott, 49, of Bonney Lake.
