Man Who Struck Kile Glover With Jet Ski Identified 

A man who accidentally struck two children on Lake Lanier over the weekend has been identified. As previously reported, Tameka Raymond is said to be reeling after her 11-year-old son was hit in the head by a Jet Ski while lying in an inner tube with an unidentified 15-year-old girl. Kile Glover, her son with Atlanta TV exec Ryan Glover, is said to be brain dead in a local Atlanta hospital. A statement from the family on the child’s condition read, “We know God’s in control, and are leaning on our faith in Him and His word at this most difficult time. We firmly believe in the power of prayer and ask that you all continue to pray and lift Kile up, as it’s the best way we can all support him now.”

Now the man responsible for the sad turn of events has been identified as Jeffrey S. Hubbard of Atlanta. While details are skimpy, Hubbard is said to be a 38-year-old close friend of the family who’s understandably devastated by the accident. Police report that they don’t believe alcohol was in Hubbard’s system. It’s too early to tell however whether charges will be filed.

In addition to details on Hubbard, photos of Kile’s inner tube and the Jet Ski that hit him have been released by 11 Alive News. The small floatation device and watercraft show no obvious signs of damage.
