Speedboat crashes into yacht in A.C.
By MICHAEL B. BAKER Staff Writer, (609) 272-7221

ATLANTIC CITY - - A 19-year-old northern New Jersey woman impaled a cabin cruiser with the speedboat she was driving during a boating accident Sunday afternoon in Gardner's Basin.

The woman, Howell resident Tara Pfeiffer, had just taken a 22-foot speedboat from its slip in the basin and was speeding erratically down the waterway, New Jersey State Police Staff Sgt. Kevin Eddy said. Pfeiffer either cut a turn short or lost control, and the boat smashed into a parked 42-foot cabin cruiser, Eddy said.

The speedboat's front stuck about 6 feet into the bedroom on the other boat, which was unoccupied, police said.

Pfeiffer and another passenger on the boat were taken to the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center City Campus, in Atlantic City for treatment, but their injuries were mostly minor scratches, Eddy said. A third passenger on the boat did not require treatment.

The speedboat appeared to sustain mostly cosmetic damage, Eddy said. The cabin boat, which belonged to a Jenkintown, Pa. man, was more severely damaged, and Eddy said it looked like it would take as much as $50,000 to repair it.

Police said Pfeiffer had been drinking before the accident, so she was charged with operating a boat under the influence of alcohol, reports show. The owner of the speedboat, also a Howell resident, had been in the bar with Pfeiffer and her friends before the accident, so he was charged with allowing an intoxicated person to drive his boat, Eddy said.
