MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Investigators are probing a Jet Ski crash on a northern Minnesota lake that left two people hurt.

WCCO-TV reports the crash took place Friday afternoon on Little Sturgeon Lake in St. Louis County. Authorities say a man and woman from Hibbing were traveling east on their Jet Ski when they collided with a second Jet Ski traveling west. All three people were thrown into the water.

The Hibbing man and woman both sustained leg injuries and were transported to a hospital. The rider on the other Jet Ski, a man from Chisholm, wasn’t hurt. Investigators say alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash.
