STRATFORD, Conn. — Two jet ski operators who collided on the Housatonic River in Stratford — with one suffering a broken leg — were charged by the Connecticut State Environmental Conservation Police.
On Aug. 19, Marine District Officers responded to the Housatonic River in Stratford on a report of a collision of two jet skis, with injuries to one of the operators, EnCon police said.
Officers located both jet ski operators and found that one had been transported to a local hospital with a broken leg, EnCon police said.
Upon further investigation, it was determined that the two operators were jumping the wake of a powered vessel and crossed each other’s path, resulting in a broadside collision, EnCon police said.
Both operators were charged with second-degree reckless operation, and the operator with the broken leg was also charged with operation of a personal watercraft without a license.
