Boating accident sends three to the hospital

A boating accident in Escambia Bay sent three people to the hospital.

The accident happened on the waters just south of Mackey Cove and the Escambia River.

An Escambia County spokesperson says it seems the boat was headed down the Escambia River to the bay when it hit a sandbar just before 9:30 Tuesday night.

Crews used the docks of a home on Scenic Highway to launch their rescue efforts.

One person was taken to the hospital with serious injuries and two others were hurt.

Florida Fish and Wildlife officials are investigating.
