Point Lookout, NY - August 24, 2016 - The Marine Bureau reports the details of a boating accident that occurred in Point Lookout on Wednesday, August 24, 2016 at 5:45 P.M.

According to police, a 21 foot vessel, with two occupants on board, struck a 14 foot vessel, with three adults and three children (ages 1, 3, 10) on board, while in Sloop Channel Jones Inlet, caused by impaired vision from sun glare.
