PALM VALLEY, Fla. -- Five people were killed and seven others transported to area hospitals after a boat hit a tugboat in the Intracoastal Waterway in St. Johns County early Sunday evening.
According to St. Johns County Fire-Rescue spokesman Jeremy Robshaw, a 22-foot boat with 12 people on board hit a 25-foot tub boat in the Intracoastal Waterway near the 200 block of Roscoe Boulevard -- about one mile north of the Palm Valley Bridge -- just after 7 p.m.
All those injured were transported to Jacksonville-area hospitals -- the three most seriously injured transported by air ambulance.
