LAND O' LAKES, Wis. (AP) - Two people have been injured in a collision between two boats on a Vilas County lake.

Sheriff's officials say a motor boat and row boat crashed on Black Oak Lake Thursday night in the town of Land O' Lakes. One of two people in the row boat were thrown into the water. Authorities say the driver of the motor boat jumped into the lake and grabbed the victim.

The sheriff's department says the motor boat operator was able to bring the victim and the row boat to shore.

Emergency responders arrived and the two people who were in the row boat were taken by air to a Wausau hospital. There's no immediate word on their condition.
