3 SC men charged in boat crashes that killed 4

Columbia, SC - SOUTH CAROLINA (AP) - Three South Carolina men have been charged in a pair of boat crashes on Lake Murray that killed four people earlier this year.

Multiple media outlets reported that 25-year-old Steven Kranendonk of Irmo and 25-year-old Steven Miller of Irmo each are charged with two counts of felony boating under the influence of alcohol.

Twenty-four-year-old David Porth of Gilbert is charged with boating while intoxicated.

Officials say Kranendonk was driving a boat that hit another boat, killing 25-year-old Kelli Bullard of Lexington and 24-year-old Amber Golden of Woodville, Ala.

Miller's boat was carrying 21-year-old Kyle Howk of Columbia and 36-year-old Randall Carter of Irmo, who died when Miller's boat collided with a boat driven by Porth.

No trial date has been set.
