Florida saw a number of serious boating accidents over the past week, with at least two collisions resulting in serious injury, and one of those resulting in death.
Last Saturday two people were reported injured in Sarasota after being involved in a boat crash near the 3400 block of Flamingo Ave. Fox13News.com reports that the boat in which they were riding struck a channel marker, injuring up to five people in the boat. Two of the victims were seriously injured and taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital for treatment.
