Teen Suffers Serious Leg Injuries in Lake Texoma Accident
A 16-year-old female from Burleson, Texas is in serious condition after a boating accident on Lake Texoma Sunday afternoon.
The victim and a 59-year-old woman, also from Burleson, had reportedly been driving at each other on Yamaha water crafts and turning at the last moment to splash each other. But, eventually, the 59-year-old did not turn in time, striking the 16-year-old's vessel on the right side.
Both drivers were ejected as a result of the collision. The 16-year-old was flown by Air-Evac to a Dallas hospital due to leg injuries. The 59-year-old refused treatment.
Other boaters in the area were able to bring the victims to shore after the accident.
