Three people received minor injuries after two boats collided near the Edmonds waterfront Monday night.
According to South County Fire spokeswoman Leslie Hynes, a crew was deployed on South County Fire’s Marine 16 boat from the Port of Edmonds after the collision between two recreational power boats around 8:40 p.m.
One of the boats left the scene while the other boat was “dead in the water,” Hynes said. Marine 16 crews retrieved two people on board the disabled boat and brought them to shore at the marina. The two were taken to Swedish Edmonds with minor injuries, she said.
The single occupant in the second boat was able to get that vessel to shore and was also evaluated for minor injuries, Hynes said. It was unclear how far off shore the collision occurred, she added.
The Washington State Ferries’ MV Puyallup also launched a rescue boat, and the Coast Guard also responded, Hynes said.
The collision ripped the motor off the boat remaining in the water, Hynes said. Although the vessel did not appear to be taking on water, Marine 16 was standing by until a tow vessel arrived, to make sure no other boats collided with it.
