Lake Buchanan Boating Fatality File Story – Texas Parks & Wildlife [Official]


I woke back up and saw some
fishermen driving by and I tried to wave with my
left arm at them and that’s when I realized
I was injured ’cause I couldn’t get my left arm up.
I thought it might be cramping up or something. JUST OVER A YEAR AGO 17-YEAR-OLD JIM DANIELS
WAS FISHING WITH 2 FRIENDS AT NIGHT WHEN ANOTHER BOAT
RAN HEAD ON INTO THEM, KILLING HIS SCHOOLMATE
JUSTIN ROBERTS. The other boat basically launched
up and over this one here. Jim Daniels was sitting
behind the wheel. Kelly Corbin was sitting in
the passenger seat and Justin Roberts was sitting in
the back seat up top. NOW TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE

to rest in peace. IN BURNET COUNTY,
