4 hurt in weekend boating accident

Saved by the Jacket

A two-boat crash on Crystal Lake that took place on Friday evening left four people injured and one with significant lacerations. Life jackets were reported to have properly been used during the crash based on preliminary information.

“We’d like to remind everyone to pay attention while driving their boats so that accidents like this can be prevented in the future,” President of the Crystal Lake Association Steve Meinhardt said. “People should also be aware that when the sun is going down, it can get in your eyes and make it difficult to see. We don’t know if that played a factor in this accident or not.”
