Families of South Carolina Boat Crash Victims Settle

October 5, 2011

The families of two women killed in a boat crash on Lake Murray last year will each be paid nearly $250,000 by the family of the man who authorities say caused the collision.

The State newspaper reported that the court-approved settlement goes to the parents of 25-year-old Kelli Bullard of Lexington and 24-year-old Amber Golden of Huntsville, Ala.

The women were killed in the May 1, 2010 crash.

The newspaper reported that Steven Kranendonk of Irmo did not admit fault as part of the settlements. Kranendonk was charged with two counts of felony boating under the influence of alcohol.

Court records show that he and his father are in talks with the women’s boyfriends who were injured in the crash.
