3 injured, dog killed in St. Johns / Osteen boat collision


Three Sanford residents were taken to a hospital Sunday after two boats collided in the St. Johns River, authorities said. The boats collided about 2:30 p.m. in the St. Johns River near Lemon Bluff Road in Osteen, said Kat Kelley, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokeswoman.

A 26-year-old man suffered a broken leg and his dog was killed in the accident. He was taken to Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach in stable condition, said EVAC ambulance spokesman Mark O'Keefe.

From the second boat, one woman was airlifted to Halifax and a man was taken to the hospital by EVAC ambulance. Both were in stable condition. O'Keefe said.

Officers from the Conservation Commission are investigating the accident.
