ST. LOUIS, Mo. – A man was injured on July 27th in a boat crash on the Meramec River in Franklin County.
Two boats were traveling down the river when they approached a gravel bar in the middle of the river. A boat on the right side of the river made a sudden turn in front of another boat, not giving enough time for that boat to come to a stop. This resulted in the boat crashing into the rear of the boat that made the sudden turn.
A 31-year-old man was seriously injured in the accident and was taken to a hospital in Washington, Missouri.
