An Evansville man dies after a speedboat crash in Kentucky Saturday.

Witnesses tell police that 68-year-old Lloy Burns was practicing runs in a drag racing boat on Kentucky Lake near Land Between the Lakes when the craft went airborne at a high speed.

The boat reportedly flipped, came back to the surface, and large portion disintegrated from the impact with the water.

Burns was ejected and thrown into the water.
