CLAY COUNTY, Fla. -- Five people were injured after trying to get their boat out of bad weather on Black Creek on Tuesday afternoon.
Three adults and two children were among the injured, according to Karen Parker of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission.
The injured individuals were taken UF Health at Jacksonville with non-life-threatening injuries. Three other children were on board the boat but were not injured.
The 21-foot open deck boat was headed to the Knights Boat Ramp when it veered to the right and hit trees along the creek's shoreline, coming to rest 25-30 feet in the woods.
The investigation into the crash is continuing, Parker said.
