Runaway Motorboat Crashes with a Sailboat, San Diego

A runaway motorboat caused quite a scene Saturday on Mission Bay.

San Diego lifeguards said the operator lost control of the boat, knocking all of the occupants off and leaving the boat to steer itself.

Video shows it making a wide arc, possibly towing an inflatable, and then crashing into a sailboat. It kept spinning out of control until lifeguards flipped it upside down.

One person on the sailboat was injured but they were treated and released, according to lifeguards.

I didn't think it was a big deal, until I saw the powerboat go OVER the sailboat, (with the engines probably at full speed, and the props screaming) The people in the sailboat are really lucky. This could have wound up in the "Video Deaths" section.

Guess the Memorial Day idiot was not attach the dead man's rope to his lifejacket.
