The crash was not fatal, but it did leave a jet-skiier uncoscious in the river; he's recovering in a local hospital

On Friday evening, July 1st, two people were enjoying the clear and warm weather by jet skiing near Sellwood Riverfront Park on the Willamette River. The idyll was interrupted when one of them ran into a sailboat. Central Precinct officers and Portland Fire and Rescue responded to the accident.

The involved jet skier was conscious after the collision, but was taken to the hospital with "serious" injuries, according to PF&R. There is no further report on their condition due to federal privacy laws.

The fire officials added the involved sailboat was "immobilized", and was towed to shore. No other injuries were reported.
