An Overland Park man was arrested on suspicion of boating while intoxicated after a triple fatal accident on the Lake of the Ozarks in central Missouri.

The Missouri Highway Patrol says the boat with five people aboard struck a rock bluff shortly before 2 a.m. Saturday, and three people were thrown into the water. All five people involved were friends who had attended Olathe East High School.

"It's real hard to perceive the depth and the distance at nighttime," said Corp. David Campbell, Missouri State Highway Patrol. "Most things are not lit up at all."

The Patrol says the three victims who died were all from the Kansas City Metro. They are identified as 23-year-old Joseph LeMark, of Overland Park, 24-year-old Daniel Lewis, of Overland Park and 21-year-old Hailey Hochanadel, of Olathe.

Authorities say 21-year-old Ashley Lamb, of Olathe, was hospitalized in serious condition.

The boat's driver, 22-year-old Hayden Frazier, of Overland Park, faces several charges.
