On October 11, 2008, within the Clay Township, a serious boating accident happened on the St. Clair River. There were four people on the boat, and only one person survived the crash. The two couples were on the boat enjoying their evening, when their boat crashed into a dock on the River.
None of the passengers were wearing life jackets, which would have probably saved all of their lives. The boat was split open by a piling throwing everyone from the boat and info the water. Two died on the scene or on the way to the hospital, the other died at the hospital. Witnesses and Police saw a large amount of alcohol on the boat, which may have lead to the accident.
