FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - Rescue crews took four people to the hospital after, officials said, two boats collided in Fort Lauderdale, overnight Sunday.
According to a witness, a boat didn’t have its headlights on when it crashed into the vessel head on, on the Intracoastal Waterway, near a sports bar on Northeast 32nd Avenue.
“Several boats were involved, and there are several injuries, and they were extensive enough to be transported to the hospital,” said Tyson Matthews of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
One man fell off the vessel and hit his head. The injuries sustained by the others are unclear.
“It’s really sad. Honestly, people should be more careful,” said witness Gabi Downey. “I’m not exactly sure why they didn’t have their headlights on.”
The four victims were transported to Broward Health Medical Center. Their condition is currently unknown.
