Authorities said at least six people suffered serious injuries after a motor boat collided with a sailboat on Branched Oak Lake near Lincoln.
One person was being investigated for boating under the influence after the crash damaged both watercrafts, said Stacey Lewton of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
The accident occurred just before 8 p.m. Friday when a powered motor boat struck a sailboat that was drifting, Lewton said. Bystanders helped pull passengers to safety.
Lewton said the incident remained under investigation.
