Earlier this month in Key Biscayne, Florida, two individuals were injured and one was killed in a boating accident. According to a local news article, a 68-foot yacht crashed into a 27-foot smaller watercraft.
A 29-year-old woman was killed due to injuries from the crash, and a 33-year-old and 23-year-old were severely injured. The injured parties were rushed to Mercy Hospital and Jackson Memorial’s Ryder Trauma Center. Unfortunately, both the survivors are currently in critical condition.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is attempting to determine the exact nature of the crash, and specifically, if the driver of the yacht was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash. The Commission spokesperson indicated that the driver originally exhibited some signs of impairment. The investigation is ongoing at the present time.
