Stolen boat runs into bridge piling

A bizarre boating accident left investigators looking for answers - and the driver of the boat. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission said a 22-foot Everglade fishing boat, which was stolen, crashed into the Tom's Bayou Bridge in Valparaiso.

Police say they suspect the vessel was being operated at night, without any lights on, with the throttle in a wide-open position and the boat going at least 50 mph. They don't think the driver was on board at the time of the crash.
