3 Hurt When Boats Collide on Central Texas Lake

Three people were hospitalized and 10 people pulled from the waters of Lake Travis after at least two boats collided.

Authorities say the vessels collided Saturday evening and a helicopter was used to help spot people in the water.

KVUE-TV in Austin reports the accident happened near Emerald Point, which is a northern portion of the lake. The popular lake is about 20 miles northwest of Austin.

Three women were taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.

No other information was immediately available.
