She was transported by life helicopter to University Hospital in Columbia MO, that night, and she died there a week later on Friday about 7:51 p.m., according to a report published by LakeNewsOnline headquartered in Camdenton, MO.
Reavy, 53, sustained the injuries while she was a passenger in tritoon boat that was in a near head-on boating accident the evening of May 18.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol Water Division report, the accident occurred about 9:53 p.m. May 18 when a 2000 Sea Ray runabout driven by Thomas Rainey, 59, of Lees Summit, MO, ran over the top of a 2008 Bennington tritoon driven by Daniel Reavy, 49, of Wildwood.
