EUSTIS, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a teenage boy was killed when a personal watercraft he was a passenger on crashed head-on into another watercraft on Lake Joanna in Central Florida.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Gary Morse says 14-year-old Nicholas Polk died Sunday afternoon.
Morse told the Orlando Sentinel says four teens had gone onto the lake together. He says all were wearing life jackets but none had taken to required boater safety course.
According to Morse, the two vehicles were speeding toward one another. At some point they both veered in the same direction. The other teens were not injured.
The wild life agency continues to investigate.
