Boat crash near Kono Tayee injures man

NORTHSHORE – A man was seriously injured in a boating collision that took place along the Northshore Thursday afternoon.


The collision, reported just after 2 p.m., involved two power boats that were located by the Lake County Sheriff's Boat Patrol near Kono Tayee, officials reported.


Along with Boat Patrol, Northshore Fire medics responded to the scene.


There were multiple passengers in both boats, but their names were not available for release Thursday afternoon.


However, Sgt. Dennis Ostini, who supervises the Boat Patrol, confirmed that one out-of-county man was hurt in the crash, sustaining a broken leg and suffering severe bleeding from his head.


Rescuers used Glenhaven's Sea Breeze Resort as a staging area to bring the crash victims to shore, and then transported them to Paradise Cove. There, a REACH air ambulance landed inside the gated community around 3:15 p.m. to pick up the injured man and transport him to the hospital, officials reported.


Boat Patrol towed the two powerboats involved in the crash back to Braito's Marina, where Ostini said they were looking the boats over.


Ostini said investigators didn't believe alcohol was involved.
