ANGOLA, Ind. (WFFT) - A Toledo woman was taken to a hospital after a boating accident on Lake James Wednesday.
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources said Matthew Meyer, 40, was driving a jet ski around 11 a.m. when he stopped to cool off.
Conservation officers said when Meyer got back on the jet ski, he put on his life vest and the kill switch lanyard attaced to the vest wrapped around the throttle.
The jet ski went off at near full speed and threw Meyer off, hitting a pontoon owned by Jeffery Martin of Toledo, Ohio.
Nine people were on the pontoon, one person was thrown off into shallow water.
Denise Martin, 69 of Toledo, Ohio was taken to a hospital with minor injuries to her face.
