A 50-year-old woman was injured in a two-boat collision on Lake Washington today, said Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore.
Mercer Island harbor patrol brought the woman to shore, and emergency responders took her to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of seemingly minor injuries to her ribs and back.
Alcohol doesn’t appear to be a factor in the crash, according to Seattle police. It’s unclear exactly what caused the collision, but police believe choppy waters and the sun reflecting off the water were contributing factors.
Police are investigating the incident.
