Alcohol and drug use along with human error are the most frequently cited causes of injury and drowning deaths on Oklahoma lakes. Most boating accidents are the result of excessive speed, lack of proper look out, hazardous waters, and general reckless operation of the boat. Also, most lake accidents and death occur on weekend days between the hours of 2 and 10 p.m. Stastically, Grand Lake of the Cherokees has the most frequent boating accidents of all other lakes in Oklahoma.
