Alex City Man killed, others injured from Lake Martin Boat Collision

boat crashYou are looking at a photo of the pontoon boat struck from behind by a bass boat last night on Lake Martin that claimed the life of an Alex City man, Stanley Sides, age 66.

There were two other injuries from passengers of the pontoon boat, one of which is Side’s wife, who reportedly suffered a brain bleed from the impact and was transported to UAB, where she remains at this time. I have no other information on the other injury other than they were treated at Russell Medical Center.

The crash occurred at 8:45 p.m. in the Tallapoosa River channel of Lake Martin, Kowaliga Bay,  between Dennis Creek and Mallard Point in Tallapoosa County. Alabama State Troopers from the Marine Patrol Division are actively investigating the collision.

I was told by several people who knew Stanley Sides that he was a great man and also the successful business owner of Sides Drywall, Inc of Auburn, AL.Please remember this family in your prayers.
