UPDATE 10:21am 07/31/2011: Eye On Annapolis spoke with Sergeant Brian Albert of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources for more information. According to their preliminary investigation, it appears that the sailboat cut in front of the power boat and the power boat struck the sailboat. There were citations issued on the scene. Alcohols does not appear to have been a factor in this accident. Please see our other post on two other serious accidents in Anne Arundel County waters yesterday.

UPDATE 09:51am 07/31/2011: From Division Chief Michael Cox of the Anne Arundel County Fire Department, there were three (not two as previously reported here) victims. Two males in their 20s were transported by Maryland State Police Helicopter to Shock Trauma with serious but not life threatening conditions. A female in her 30s was transported to Anne Arundel Medical Center by ground with minor injuries. The time of the call was 12:12am. We have a call into DNR who is leading the investigation for further details.

Just after midnight last night, a  speed boat and a sailboat collided in Selby Bay (South River) near 3478 South River Terrace.

When Department of Natural Resources Police and Anne Arundel County Fireboats arrived they pulled at least two from the water and requested additional medics to the scene to be transported tot he scene for additional rescues.

Two patients were flown to Shock Trauma by Maryland State Police in serious condition and two were one was transported to Anne Arundel Medical Center.
