Raleigh, N.C. — Authorities say three people were hospitalized late Thursday after being ejected from a boat on Falls Lake in Raleigh.
A North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission officer said the two men and one woman were thrown after their 19-foot ski boat ran ashore just north of the N.C. Highway 98 bridge.
All three were taken to Duke University Hospital for treatment on injuries that authorities said weren't life-threatening. Their names and ages haven't been released.
Alcohol was a factor in the crash, the wildlife officer said. No charges had been filed as of Friday afternoon, but the incident remains under investigation.
