Boat crashes into seawall in Rhode Island; 6 injured

COVENTRY, R.I. (AP) — Authorities say a pontoon boat crashed into a seawall and ran aground in Rhode Island, injuring four adults and two children.

The crash happened Friday evening on Johnson’s Pond in Coventry.

Authorities say six people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Coventry Fire Chief Frank Brown tells WPRI-TV there were some “some broken bones and bumps and bruises.”

Brown says it appears the driver fell out of his chair and wasn’t able to regain control of the boat before it crashed into the seawall.
