DEXTER LAKE, Ore. (AP) - Three women were injured when a motor boat collided with a crew boat on Dexter Lake.

The Register-Guard newspaper reports (https://is.gd/h9bf3z ) that two women went to Pleasant Hill Urgent Care and the other went to a Springfield hospital. The injuries ranged from an arm abrasion to whiplash.

Crew member Margot McDonald says the eight-person team was practicing when the collision occurred Tuesday evening.

According to McDonald, the driver of the motor boat appeared to be looking toward Dexter Park and didn’t see the crew boat until right before impact.

The motor boat was not damaged in the crash. The boater followed the rowers to the dock and helped the team lift its boat from the water.

The Lane County Sheriff’s Office says it doesn’t appear that anyone was impaired by alcohol or drugs.
