Paul Peterlin, who was involved in a boating accident that resulted in the death of his wife and daughter Saturday on Lake Englebright, remains in serious condition at Sutter-Roseville Medical Center Wednesday, according to a hospital spokesperson.

"He is recovering and is doing well," said Brock Peterlin, Paul Peterlin's son, in an email to The Union.

Paul Peterlin, 42, of Penn Valley, suffered injuries when the boat he was piloting was struck by another boat operated by 53-year-old Jeffrey Sandow of Auburn, who was allegedly intoxicated at the time, said Lt. Damon Gil of the Yuba County Sheriff's Office.

Paul Peterlin's wife and child, Cynthia Peterlin, 42, and Sophie Peterlin, 12, were killed in the accident.

Sandow was arrested on two counts of vehicular manslaughter with special circumstances, Gil said. Information pertaining to Sandow's blood alcohol level has not been released.

Sandow posted $100,000 bail Monday and is scheduled to appear in court 9 a.m. Oct. 16, according to the Appeal-Democrat in Marysville.
