Four people suffered minor injuries after a fishing boat crashed into a pontoon Tuesday morning on Rush Lake.

The pontoon boat, which was stationary in the water, was hit on the side by the fishing boat around 9:30 a.m., according to the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office. Four passengers were on board each boat at the time of the crash.


The driver of the fishing boat said he did not see the pontoon until the crash was unavoidable, as his vision was obstructed.
