Kilgore has near miss pulling boat back to weigh-in

Alabama angler David Kilgore had a tough day on the water Sunday, landing only two fish that weighed 5 pounds. But it almost got much worse as he hauled his boat back toward Bon Secours Wellness Arena for the final-day weigh-in Greenville, S.C.

 

“The guy in the car in front of me on the interstate geared down for some reason and just started spinning,” Kilgore said. “I made it past him, but then it dawned on me that I was pulling a boat. I looked back in my rear view mirror, and he couldn’t have missed me by more than a foot. He crashed into the center guard rail.

 

“I’ve never had anything like that happen before. I couldn’t even breathe for five minutes after it happened. My knees are still shaking now.”
