He and six other hunters were headed toward their blind on the Mississippi River Illinois side having launched on the Iowa side. The boat driver struck a channel marker. The boat driver had been hunting on the Mississippi for many years. He knew the river and its dangers. He knew this particular area of the river very well. They had been preparing their blind for weeks.Two men were killed, the rest had serious injuries. There were numerous misjudgements and assumptions made that morning on the part of the driver. Now, at age 50, after 23 years of marriage, I find myself a widow with three teenagers. You do not want the county coroner making an unannounced visit to your family home, as he did mine, changing my life forever.
