Man suffers life-threatening injuries in Ipswich boat crash

The boat’s operator, who is from Ipswich, was the only person injured in the crash.

A 19-year-old man was flown to a hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries Saturday after he fell out of the boat he was driving and the vessel ran him over before crashing into a houseboat, Ipswich police said.

Three other people also fell out of the boat when it took a turn in Ipswich Bay shortly before 3 p.m., Police Chief Paul Nikas said in a statement.

The man was flown to Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington. His condition was not known Saturday night.
