Jet ski accident injures two people in Starke County

Two people were hurt when their jet skis collided on Bass Lake in Starke County. Both drivers were thrown into the water but they were wearing life jackets.

Twenty-six year-old Amanda Marsh of North Judson was treated and released for minor injuries. Thirty-three-year-old Jeremy Hershman of California is in a South Bend hospital, recovering from broken ribs and fractured vertebrae.

The DNR says he struck Marsh's jet ski. She was able to get back to shore, but a nearby pontoon boater helped Hershman to shore for treatment.
