Rhode Island man dies after Lake of the Ozarks high-speed boat crash

Posted: Updated:

The owner of a Rhode Island-based powerboat company has died after a high-speed boat crash in Missouri last weekend.

Forty-four-year-old Michael Fiori of Bristol, Rhode Island, died Tuesday evening at University Hospital in Columbia, Missouri, according to Frank Sciacca, general counsel for Fiore's company, Outerlimits Offshore Powerboats. Sciacca said in a statement that Fiori died from complications from surgery after the accident.

Police in central Missouri say Fiore was aboard a racing boat that flipped over on Lake of the Ozarks at more than 150 mph on Saturday morning. Authorities say wind played a role in the crash.

Sciacca says Fiori was married with three young children, and his family and friends are devastated by his death. Funeral arrangements are pending.
