Jet Ski Accident
RALEIGH, N.C. — Charges are possible against a teen involved in a deadly jet ski accident.

Wildlife officials say a jet ski slowed down near the Eaton Ferry Bridge on Lake Gaston.

They said a second jet ski later ran over the top of the first one, killing the 15-year-old driver and critically hurting a 16-year-old passenger. The driver and passenger of the second jet ski were not seriously hurt.

Wildlife officials say the operator of the second jet ski had not undergone an approved boating safety course.

Officers are not releasing the teens' names because of their ages.
