Boat crash injures two in southern Arundel

A boat crashed into a jetty in Herring Bay near Deale on Thursday afternoon, injuring at least two of four people on board, according to the Anne Arundel County Fire Department.

About 5:55 p.m., rescue units from both Anne Arundel and Calvert counties — Deale skirts the line between the two — responded to the jetty near Rockhold Creek for reports of a "pleasure boat" having crashed into the jetty, said Lt. Keith Hamilton, a department spokesman.

Personnel from Calvert County were the first to arrive, and pulled all four passengers from the crashed boat onto their fire boat before heading to shore, Hamilton said.

Once ashore, two people were transported to the Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis with non-life-threatening injuries, Hamilton said. Two others refused medical attention, he said.

Hamilton said he did not know the ages or identities of those on the boat, but believed they were all adults.
