A Bolton Landing man was killed Friday night when he crashed his motorboat into the shore of Lake George.
State police said they are trying to determine the cause of the accident, which occurred just after 10 p.m. Troopers said John Michaels, 57, was driving a 21-foot Steiger Craft alone on the lake when he crashed into rocks and trees along the shore near Cotton Point Road.
Michaels suffered massive trauma and was taken by ambulance to Glens Falls Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, troopers said.
Bolton police, fire and EMS and Lake George EMS also responded. State Department of Environmental Conservation police are assisting troopers in the investigation.
