State police: 2 people hurt in hit-and-run boating accident
JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP (AP) — State police say two people were hurt in a hit-and-run boating accident in northern New Jersey.
The accident occurred around 10 p.m. Saturday on Lake Hopatcong.
Witnesses say a large, white cabin boat with an aluminum prop collided with another boat, causing extensive damage to the latter vessel. The first boat then fled the scene.
Five people were in the boat that was struck. Two of them were treated at the scene for minor injuries, but further details were not disclosed.
Authorities say the boat that fled the scene should have damage to the hull and prop.
