ANTIOCH — Authorities say a 57-year-old man died after his jet ski crashed into another vessel near Bethel Island in Contra Costa County.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the crash occurred around 1:45 p.m. Sunday. Sheriff’s spokesman Jimmy Lee says the victim was standing on his jet ski when he crashed into a man on a personal watercraft known as a Wave Runner.
The man on the jet ski was taken to Sutter Delta Medical Center in Antioch, where he was pronounced dead. His name has not been released.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
Sheriff’s marine patrol Lt. Doug Powell says both the victim and the man on the Wave Runner had little to no boating knowledge.
