OLD FORGE, N.Y. --- 22-year-old Carter Lawrence of Old Forge was in the Town of Webb Court on Monday afternoon. Lawrence has pleaded not guilty to the charges of driving a boat while intoxicated and vehicular assault.

The Town of Webb Police said Lawrence allegedly crashed his ski boat into a pontoon boat on Fourth Lake Saturday evening. 5 people were on board the pontoon boat including 2 6-year old children. Both 6 year old's and an elderly male are listed in critical condition at Upstate University Medical Center in Syracuse.

Investigators say the investigation is still ongoing and they are looking into whether both boats had their lights on at the time of the crash.

In court on Monday, Lawrence discussed his future court appearance with the judge. Herkimer County District Attorney Jeff Carpenter said the victim's condition will ultimately determine their next course of action.

Carpenter will also be in contact with Lawrence's attorney about their next course of action.

Lawrence is currently out of jail after posting $25,000 bail. He is due back in court on December 8th.
