2 injured in hit & run boat crash on Lake Lanier

Posted: Updated:

GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Georgia authorities are hunting for a boat operator involved in a hit & run collision on Lake Lanier than injured two people.

A spokesperson for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources tells FOX 5 News that the crash at nearly midnight Friday caused heavy damage to a Sea-Doo jet boat that had two people on it. The Georgia Department of Natural Resources says both people were taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center, where they were in stable condition. Their names were not immediately released.

Authorities say the boat operator who hit the Sea-Doo fled after the crash. They say the Sea-Doo was either idling or moving at slow speed with its lights on beneath a bright moon when the other boat essentially ran over it.

The collision came at the start of a busy Memorial Day weekend on Lake Lanier.
