One person was killed when two personal watercraft collided off Lido Key Wednesday, officials said.
Zachary Collins, 25, died as a result of the accident, according to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman.
It happened around 5:30 p.m.
“One jet ski approached another in the water and struck it, causing the fatality of the individual on board,” said Baryl Martin, public information officer with FWC.
Martin said the person on the other watercraft, 25-year-old Keaton Fowler, had minor injuries. Both men are from New Lexington, Ohio, Martin said.
Martin said the two men had rented the jet skis and took safety classes beforehand. They were wearing lifejackets, and Martin said alcohol isn’t believed to be a factor in the crash.?
