OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) - A woman is in the hospital after she was struck by a propeller when her jet ski collided with a power boat near Ocean City.

Maryland Natural Resources Police spokeswoman Candy Thomson says the vessels collided Thursday afternoon in Assawoman Bay.

Officials say the woman fell off her watercraft and was struck in the leg and back by the 30-foot power boat’s propeller.

She was airlifted to a Delaware hospital. Officials have not released details about her condition.

It is unclear whether charges will be filed.

This story has been corrected to show the last name of the police spokeswoman is Thomson, not Thompson.
