LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say nine people were injured after a row boat they were in collided with a motorized boat off Marina Del Rey and was split in half.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Brent Carlson says those on the row boat were pulled from the water and most had minor injuries after Sunday morning's accident. However, a woman was airlifted to the hospital where she was treated and released.
Carlson says the driver of the motorized boat, Peter Sorrento of Chatsworth, was alone and apparently didn't see the row boat in front of him. Sorrento was cited for violating state boating rules that require having a lookout on his boat.
Carlson declined to describe the extent of the woman's injuries, citing medical privacy laws.
