Bangor man dies in Mass. speed boat race

TAUNTON, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a second person involved in a three-boat crash during a speed boat race on a Massachusetts lake has died.

Bristol District Attorney Thomas Quinn reported Friday that 67-year-old Stephen Joy, of Bangor, Maine, died at Rhode Island Hospital in Providence as a result of injuries sustained in the Sept. 10 crash on Watson Pond in Taunton.

Mark Greene, of Moultonborough, New Hampshire, was pronounced dead on the scene of the crash during the Bill Giles Memorial Regatta.

Fire officials previously said that one boat spun out traveling 65 mph, and then was struck by the other two.

The South Shore Outboard Association, which organized the event, said on its Facebook page it was saddened by the news of Joy's death.

State Environmental Police are investigating the crash.
