Dunedin, FL (May 2, 2021) – A man suffered serious injuries following a crash involving a jet ski and a boat in the Dunedin area on Saturday, May 1.
Local authorities revealed that the accident occurred that morning at around 11:24 a.m. Initial reports indicated that a 28-foot Chaparral Bowrider was traveling eastbound parallel to the Dunedin Causeway at the time of the impact. It was then that a Sea-Doo jet ski was seen going toward the boat.
The 43-year-old man riding the jet ski collided with the rear of the boat. The boat promptly stopped and its operator aided the injured man in order to retrieve him from the water and contact authorities. The wounded party was transported to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries.
An investigation into the cause of the collision is in progress.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.
