A New Paris teen is recovering after she was badly injured in a boating accident in Kosciusko County over the weekend.
Riley Wagner, 16, is now listed in fair condition at a Fort Wayne hospital. That is according to our reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth.
DNR officials suspect that a throttle problem caused the boat in which Wagner was riding to accelerate quickly and crash on the shore of Lake Wawasee last Sunday.
The driver of the boat was not hurt, but Wagner was tossed several feet into the air suffering fractures to her pelvic area as well as injuries to her lower vertebrae.
Damage to the boat was minor, and officials expect it to be drivable after some repairs.
