File this one under “Foreseeable Consequences.”

Earlier this month two men were injured, one critically, after their 33-foot boat hit a breakwater near the Port of Indiana in Lake Michigan around 3 a.m.  According to investigators, the boat was traveling around 30-35 miles per hour though the speed limit for night-time boating in Indiana is 10 m.p.h.

One of the men was airlifted to the hospital.  An joint Coast Guard/Department of Natural Resources investigation is ongoing.
