A 55-year-old Connecticut man has been arrested following a fatal boating collision on a local lake.
Police say they have charged Mark Rudzinski, of Newtown, with failing to keep a proper lookout and reckless boating in the first degree.
Authorities say Rudzinski was operating a ski boat on Lake Zoar in July when he struck a pontoon boat. The operator of the pontoon, 52-year-old Randall Pineau, was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
His wife, Katherine, was treated for minor injuries at the hospital and later released.
A total of six people were on the two vessels.
Rudzinski is scheduled for a court appearance Oct. 31. It's unclear if he has any representation.
