Boat Accident on the POW HIGHWAY!

Boat accidents happen often on the water...however it's not often that they get into an incident while on the Highway. POW Report sources relay that sometime on the morning of May 9, 2018 a driver taking their boat to Naukati lost control of their vehicle and their boat slid off the trailer and unto the highway.

For legal reasons POW Report may not speculate on the specifics of the incident. However, we do give our sincere condolences to the owner and their formerly nice boat.


Location: Prince of Wales Island
Type: MVC - BOAT
Dispatch Text:

On 5/9/2018 at 1443 hours, Prince of Wales State Troopers responded to a single motor vehicle collision near MP 24 Boundry Road. Investigation revealed that 74 year old Raymond Castor of Sammamish Washington was driving his 2003 Chevrolet Silverado, and pulling a 2011 Hewscraft Pacific Explorer boat. Castor reported he fell asleep at the wheel which caused the vehicle, and trailer in-tow, to enter the road ditch which caused the boat to become disconnected, and ultimately rolling onto the roadway. Multiple gallons of fuel subsequently was released onto the roadway and into the road ditch. The trailer and boat, valued at approximately $84,000 were both substantially damaged. Alcohol nor medications were a factor.
