The Boat spun a few times  before turning  over, throwing two people into the water. The Yuba county Sheriff’s Department searched by air and by foot along the shoreline yesterday, just in case  30-year-old  Matthew Camp had made it to the shore. The search continues with sonar today.     A passenger in the boat,  George Szuh, 39, was rescued though injured in the accident.  Deputies says the cause of the accident appears to be excessive speed and inexperience.   Cook  had just purchased the boat July 18th. It  had over 600 horsepower. Alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
