Tourists Among The 22 Injured After Boats Collide Near La Parguera Puerto Rico
SAN JUAN — Puerto Rico authorities say more than 20 people have been injured, three of them seriously, in a boat crash off the island’s southwest coast.
The collision took place Tuesday night near the tourist town of La Parguera, a popular weekend boating destination.
A police statement Wednesday says a private vessel crashed into a commercial boat that carries both locals and tourists to visit cays and go snorkeling. Two people on the first boat and 20 on the second were hurt.
Further details were not immediately available. A spokesman for the U.S. Coast Guard did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
