Hampshire police to investigate Osborne Bay boat death

A man has been questioned by Hampshire Constabulary, following a boat collision in Osborne Bay that killed 36-year-old Ryan McKinlay

Hampshire Constabulary’s Major Crime team has launched an investigation into the Osborne Bay motor boat crash that resulted in the death of 36-year-old Ryan McKinlay (pictured above).

A second man, who was traveling in a Williams tender with Ryan at the time of the crash on Friday June 19, has been questioned by police.

The unnamed man in his 30s voluntarily attended the police station in connection to a possible charge of involuntary manslaughter.

And although he was not arrested, police did not rule out further questioning to determine the cause of the Osborne Bay motor boat crash.

Details surrounding the incident are unclear, although it is believed that the jet-powered tender crashed into its parent vessel, a Fairline Targa 62, which was carrying 12 people at the time.
