Jet Ski Operator Reportedly ID'ed in Lanier Accident Involving Usher Stepson
Operator was a 'friend of the family,' MTV.com reports. DNR incident report cited.
A "friend of the family" was piloting the personal watercraft that injured the stepson of superstar entertainer Usher last week on Lake Lanier, according to a media report.
MTV.com has reported that Jeffrey S. Hubbard was the operator of the personal watercraft that ran into Kyle Glover (aka Kile Glover), 11, and a 15-year-old girl last week on the lake. Glover and the girl were life-flighted to Children's Hospital at Egleston in Atlanta after the accident.
According to the Department of Natural Resources incident report cited by MTV.com, Hubbard was operating the watercraft on Lake Lanier when he ran over two juveniles being towed on an inner tube by another boat at approximately 3:25 p.m. ET on Friday.
Glover reportedly has been declared brain dead by doctors, and the girl reportedly sustained a broken arm and a cut on the head.
Usher and Tameka Foster, Glover's mother, divorced in 2009. However, the entertainer, who lives in Johns Creek, chartered a plane for her to be with her son after the incident. Usher and Foster both reportedly were at the hospital Saturday.
DNR officials have said alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the incident.
This matter comes not long after two Buford brothers, Griffin and Jake Prince, were killed in a boating collision on Lake Lanier.
