A woman and child riding on a personal watercraft were injured Friday evening, when their vessel was hit by another PWC on Carter Lake. Authorities say a 5-year old boy and a 42-year old woman were struck as they were on the craft, at around 5-p.m.

A private boat brought the victims to the shore. The woman and child were then transported to the Nebraska Medical Center, where they were being treated for what were believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

No other injuries were reported, and additional details about the accident are not yet available.
