A Sandy Hook man has died in a boating accident on Lake Zoar. The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection says 52-year old Randall Pineau was pronounced dead at Danbury Hospital last night after his pontoon boat was struck by a ski boat. EnCon Police says he was in the area of the Mohawk Trail in Sandy Hook around 9:30 last night.
Pineau's wife, Katherine, suffered minor injuries. She was treated and released from the hospital. One other person suffered minor injuries and refused treatment at the scene.
There were a total of six people aboard the two vessels – four on the pontoon boat and two on the ski boat.
Newtown Police, the Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire Department, Newtown Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Lake Zoar Marine Patrol, and Connecticut State Police assisted EnCon officers. The EnCon Boating Accident Reconstruction Unit is continuing to investigate the accident.
