GREAT CACAPON  (AP) — Former Berkeley Springs High School baseball coach Ronald Clatterbuck has died in a boating accident.

Morgan County Sheriff Vince Shambaugh says Clatterbuck was fishing with his son Ross and grandson Chasen on the Cacapon River when their boat was swept over a dam and capsized.

Shambaugh tells The Journal  that Ronald Clatterbuck and his son were swept downstream. Chasen Clatterbuck got to the opposite shoreline.

Ross Clatterbuck pulled his father out of the river about 150 yards downstream and went to a nearby cabin to call 911. Ronald Clatterbuck was pronounced dead a short time later.

Ronald Clatterbuck led the Berkeley Springs baseball team to its only state championship in 1983.
