Boat crash puts five into river

NEWS-LEDGER — NOV 12, 2014 —

Two boats collided south of the Clarksburg Marina Sunday afternoon, in an accident that sent several people to the hospital.
The Yolo County Sheriff’s Department reports that “two small pleasure vessels” hit each other head on at about 3 p.m.

“Five out of the nine occupants from both vessels were ejected into the water. All the subjects were able to get back on board their boats with assistance from local fishermen.”

All nine received medical attention from firefighters and several went to the hospital for injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.

“Both vessels sustained major damage,” said the sheriff’s department. “None of the victims were wearing life jackets at the time of the accident.”
