Boat Crashes Kill 69-Year-Old Man, Injure 45-Year-Old Woman

Mar 14, 2004 | AP

Separate weekend boat crashes killed a 69-year-old man and injured a 45-year-old woman.

Elton Blanchard of Franklin died when the boat he was in developed steering trouble and hit a parked barge Saturday, throwing him into the Baldwin Canal, the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office said.

It said the accident was reported about 8 a.m., and a Franklin Fire Department crew found Blanchard's body about 90 minutes later. A second person in the boat was not seriously hurt, a news release said.

About 7:40 a.m. Sunday, two 15-foot aluminum-hulled boats, with a total of seven people aboard, collided in Norman Bayou, just south of Lafitte, the Coast Guard reported.

Heidi LeBlanc, 45, had a head injury and was taken by helicopter to West Jefferson Medical Center, said Chief Petty Officer Jeff Murphy, a Coast Guard spokesman.

He did not know LeBlanc's home town. The hospital said it would check on whether she or her family had approved release of her condition.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries was investigating both accidents.
