TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Police say a woman suffered head injuries when she was thrown from a jet ski she was riding on in the Hillsborough River.

Tampa police say the driver of the jet ski lost control after crossing into the wake of a passing boat Sunday evening. The jet ski struck a metal sign posted near the center channel. The woman was a passenger on the jet ski.

Authorities say she hit her head on the sign. She was taken to Tampa General Hospital in critical condition.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is investigating the crash. Investigators say there were no obvious signs of impairment from any of those involved in the crash.
