A Bay Area couple was killed in a boating accident near Meeks Bay in Lake Tahoe early Sunday.
According to the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office, the couple was riding in their 19-foot Glastron powerboat and was traveling at a high rate of speed when it crashed into a dock with such force that the boat hull was split in half.
Tatiana Nikolskaya, 44, and her husband Vadim Raizanov, 45, of San Ramon died of their injuries sustained in the crash.
A group of people just happen to be sleeping on the same dock when the boat struck. No one from that group was injured.
The possibility that alcohol may have been a factor in the accident is being investigated, officials said. Autopsies are scheduled for early this week.
