Woman injured in night time boat crash on Shuswap Lake

August 14, 2017 - 11:11 AM

Police are investigating a night time boat collision on Shuswap Lake last week that left one person injured.

RCMP say they were called at about 10:17 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 8, about two boats colliding on Shuswap Lake near Copper Island. One of the boats hit the back of another that wasn't moving.

The Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue based in Sicamous was called to assist but they were told to stand down after other boaters helped out, according to an RCMP media release.

A 41-year-old woman was injured in the crash. Police say she was in the stationary boat along with a man. There were two men in the moving boat.

RCMP have not released any information about the extent of the woman's injuries, her current condition or identity.

No word if any charges will be laid as the investigation continues.
