Officials: Man loses leg in boating hit-and-run

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) — Part of a man’s leg had to be amputated following what officials were describing as a hit-and-run boating crash in St. Augustine.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials tell news outlets that Logan Farquhar lost part of his leg after a ski boat struck the boat he was in Saturday night. Farquhar’s fiancee, Billie Inman, says the propeller of the ski boat cut off Farquhar’s lower leg.

Inman says the driver of the ski boat fled the scene after the accident. Officials say the suspect was eventually located and questioned. He could face criminal charges.

Inman has set up a GoFundMe page to help with medical costs and rehabilitation.
