An appeals court will now decide on a deadly boat crash on Lake Monroe.lakemonroeboatcrash

Winston Wood, 22, was convicted of leaving the scene of the 2010 crash that killed a Lawrence County woman and her 8-year-old grandson. Wood’s ski boat collided with a fishing boat.

He was sentenced last year to two years in jail and two years on home detention.

Wood says he panicked after the crash. Instead of staying to help the victims, he said he sped off to call 911 from a nearby dock.

The judge will issue a decision on his appeal later this year.
