Hit and run reported on Egegik River

From the Alaska State Troopers:

Location: Egegik
Type: Watercraft accident, property damage
On 7/5/11 at approximately 0300 hours, Terry Ostling, 39, of Cathlamet, Wash., had his fishing vessel anchored in the Egegik River. Ostling and his crew were sleeping down below when another fishing vessel hit them head-on in the dense fog. The collision caused substantial damage to the bow and snapped the anchor chain. Due to the dense fog, Ostling was unable to identify the boat that hit them. The second boat did not stop. Damage to Ostling's boat was estimated at $2,000. Anyone with information on the second boat involved in this collision is asked to call the Alaska State Troopers in King Salmon.
