9 rescued after Oregon State crew boat crashes

The Associated Press

CORVALLIS, Ore. — A $35,000 crew boat was totaled and nine members of the Oregon State University men’s rowing team were rescued when the vessel smashed into a bridge support on the Willamette River.

The accident happened Monday afternoon as several boats were on the river, which was running high and fast because of recent rains. The 30-foot vessel wrapped around a pier at the Harrison Street Bridge.

Three team members started drifting downstream, and the others clung to the wrecked craft. A coach in a powerboat helped rescue the students. No serious injuries were reported.

Crew boats are exempt from requirements that call for life jackets aboard recreational vessels.
