Desmond T. Bennett, 22, of Wanette drowned to death late last night on Tenkiller Lake, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Bennett was operating a 2008 Sea Doo around 11 p.m. near Barnacle Bill’s Marina in Cherokee County when the vehicle failed to negotiate a cove and slammed into a tree. Bennett was pronounced dead at the scene by Cherokee Nation EMS. His passenger, Kenneth Allison, 26, of Vinita, was flown by helicopter to Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa, where he was admitted in stable conditions with leg injuries.

Troopers said Bennett smelled of alcohol. Both men were using personal flotation devices.
