Watercraft Collision Injures Two
Two Watercraft Collide On Kalamalka Lake
Late Thursday night, on July 16, 2015, two personal watercrafts were involved in a collision on the Kalamalka Lake in Vernon, California. The local police were informed of the crash, which took place just before midnight at the north end of the Kalmalka Lake, when a local resident reported hearing two boats collide with each other a short while after leaving the dock.
Police were able to locate and rescue the four people involved in the crash, two of whom were seriously injured: a 29-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman, both residents of Vernon, were taken to a nearby hospital, suffering from severe injuries, ranging from a broken pelvis to spinal injuries. Fortunately, the other two men involved in the boat crash were not injured and were released after being checked over by the paramedics.
At this time, both boats have been seized while there is an ongoing investigation into the cause of the collision. If it is determined that the collision was caused due to the negligence of one of the parties, the injured parties may have cause to recover for their damages and be compensated for the unexpected medical bills that they now face.
