    GRANT COUNTY - A man was killed and his wife was seriously injured when their personal jet watercraft collided with a powerboat Friday morning on Banks Lake in Steamboat Rock State Park.

    The operator of the personal watercraft, Victor Prokhor, was seriously injured in the collision. He was taken to Coulee Community Hospital in Grand Coulee where he died of his injuries about an hour after the 8:50 a.m. accident.

    His wife, Olga Prokhor, also was taken to the hospital, where she remains in serious but stable condition and is heavily sedated, said Grant County Sheriff's Office Undersheriff John Turley.

    He said the other boat had seven passengers aboard and was pulling an inner tube with three other passengers when it collided with the personal watercraft.

    Four people were ejected from the boat in the collision - three young children and a 16-year-old girl. All were wearing life vests. They were treated for minor injuries and released.

    At this point it does not appear that alcohol or drugs were a factor in the accident, Turley said.

    I seriously hate reading things like this.
    People please be careful. I have been in a watercraft accident. It happens quickly.
