Two hospitalized after airboats crash in Everglades City

Florida wildlife officials are investigating after two airboats collided Friday afternoon in Everglades City.

The crash sent two people to the hospital, while two more had minor injuries, said Carli Segleson, spokeswoman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Segleson said the boats were towed back to Capt. Doug's Everglades Tours, although she said it was unclear if they belonged to the company.

It was not immediately clear Friday what caused the collision, Segleson said.
