Less than an hour ago during the early run at the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout, the new 46-foot SC Outerlimits catamaran owned and driven by Joel Begin and throttled by Mike Fiore—owner and founder of Outerlimits—flipped while running more than (estimated) 150 mph about three-quarters of the way down the course. After launching 50 to 60 feet in the air, the boat landed on the throttleman’s side of the canopy and came to rest right side up.
Fiore and Begin reportedly survived the crash, were extracted by the Shootout’s rescue crews and taken to University Hospital in Columbia, Mo. No details on the condition of Fiore or Begin are currently available.
