ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A witness to a boat collision told police a boat operated by a lawmaker was "flying" at "what seemed like full throttle" before a collision that injured seven people.


The 911 recording of a call made by a witness to last week's accident on the Magothy River was made public Tuesday.


Delegate Don Dwyer, R-Anne Arundel, was operating the motorboat that collided with another vessel. Dwyer said Thursday his blood alcohol content was .2, more than twice the legal limit.
