Skipper arrested after fleeing boat crash

A Key Largo, Fla., man unloaded his boat's passengers, then motored away from an Islamorada crash on the water Sunday, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported.

Kenneth W. Rumph, 43, was arrested after his 24-foot Aquasport was stopped by a Coast Guard vessel in Florida Bay, about eight miles from the Lorelei Cabana Bar boat basin, where the crash happened.

The Aquasport collided with an anchored 40-foot trawler, knocking down a man aboard the trawler.
