CCSO Assists FWC at Boat Crash Scene –
November 2nd, 2016
The CCSO is on the scene of a boat crash that occurred approximately one hour ago on Black Creek (crash site is about a quarter mile northeast of the Mariner’s Road boat ramp (Green Cove Springs – off Russell Road). We can confirm that there were three men and one woman (all adults) on the boat when the accident occurred (vessel versus tree). The female boater has serious injuries and has been taken by ambulance to OPMC as a trauma alert patient. The FWC is the lead agency on this incident so any additional information – including updates on injuries, cause of crash, extent of damage to boat, etc. – will come from that agency later today. Our agency’s Marine Unit deputies worked in combination with CCFR members to locate the crash victims and remove them from the waterway.
