Several Hurt after Boat Runs Aground in Maine

GEORGETOWN, Maine (AP) — Officials in Maine say four people were hurt when the boat they were in ran aground in the Sheepscot River off Georgetown.

The 22-foot center console boat ran aground Monday evening on Turnip Island, a small rocky island just downriver from MacMahon Island in Georgetown.

Georgetown lobsterman Steve Thibodeau Sr., who transported rescue workers to the crash site, said the boat had left Boothbay Harbor and was headed for MacMahon Island when it ran aground around 7:30 p.m.

The Portland Press Herald (bit.ly/QWEUyj) reports rescue workers said all four people on the boat had to be transported to area hospitals, but none suffered life-threatening injuries.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation by the Maine Marine Patrol.
