The U.S. Coast Guard rescued four people after an offshore boat crash at Hawkins Point in Baltimore late on the evening of May 20. One of the individuals refused medical care but the other three people on board were transported to hospital, two of them in critical condition, Coast Guard officials said.
Around 9:45 p.m., the Coast Guard received a call to inform them that a 40 foot recreational boat had crashed into concrete pilings in the water near the city's Key Bridge. When responders arrived on scene, they found the boat still afloat, but its entire front end had been destroyed. An investigation into the cause of the accident was still underway. It is unclear whether the concrete pilings were part of the bridge.
