A 52-year-old man died after state officials said he was involved in a deadly boating crash on Lake Zoar in Sandy Hook on Tuesday night.
Officials with the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Environmental Conservation Police said Sandy Hook resident Randall Pineau died in after pontoon boat collided with a ski boat on the lake in the area of the Mohawk Trail at around 9:30 p.m.
