  1. electrocution drowning at ‘lake’

    Leave a Comment

    It’s happened again on the Lake. A man was killed and a woman injured Sunday night when they were electrocuted swimming near a dock in the Woods Hollow Cove. The Highway patrol identifies the dead man as 21-year-old Marcus Colburn of East Moline Illinois. Coburn and companion Taylor Curley apparently felt electricity in the water. Colburn was climbing an aluminum ladder to get out of the water when he was shocked and fell face first into the water. Curley suffered minor injuries. The incident is the first at the lake since two Ashland children died when they were electrocuted on the Fourth of July 2012.

    The Jefferson City school board will take up the possibility of a bond issue to address overcrowding in the district…but last night was not the night. The board looked at a new budget last night…which did not include any new money for school improvements. Board members have until August 25th to decide whether or not to place a bond issue on this coming November’s ballot.

    Mizzou now says a star football player is recovering nicely from a serious car accident. The patrol reports Harold Brantley was driving on Highway 63 yesterday afternoon south of Columbia near KOMU when he went off road, hit a guard rail, and flipped. The school reports Brantley fractured a leg, and tore some ligaments in a knee, along with other injuries. His long-term prognosis is very good, though.
    A Tiger women’s basketball player, Maddie Stock, was also in the car, and suffered only minor injuries.

    off in his car…leading police on a chase that reached 100 miles per hour. The car was found abandoned on County Road 318. Wills turned himself in later in the morning. Gibson remains on the lam.

    Central Callaway fire fighters say it was likely an electrical problem that sparked the fire that destroyed a mobile home near Fulton Saturday night. Firemen fought the blaze and the weather Saturday night into Sunday morning. Torrential rain, hail and high winds force firefighters away overnight…before they returned to mop up Sunday morning. The family that owns the home was away at the time.

    It could be another rainy day for at least parts of Mid-Missouri…as the remnants of Tropical Storm bill roll across the state. We’re looking at anywhere from 2 to 5 inches of rain across the lake region. But the worst of it should stay along the Arkansas border.

    The Weather Service says this system should be out of Mid Missouri by nightfall…and we could actually have a dry day tomorrow before rain
    re-enters the picture on Sunday. The Missouri River stands at 26 – 7 feet here in Jefferson City. It should fall below flood stage this weekend.
