A woman was taken to the hospital after being struck by a personal watercraft while she was floating on an inflatable tube in Lake Champlain in Colchester.

Twenty-two-year-old Elizabeth Fish of St. George was on the tube at around 6:30 Saturday night when she was struck by a SeaDoo operated by 21-year-old Dale Newton of Colchester.

Newton told police he lost control of the SeaDoo as he was turning close to Fish’s tube. A male who was with Fish was struck but not injured.

Fish was taken to Fletcher-Allen Health Care in Colchester. Police are investigating.
