Three people were injured Saturday afternoon in a boating accident in Bayou Sorrel, the Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office reported.

Two boats collided about a mile from a boat launch, causing one of the boats to careen into some trees around 3:50 p.m., Sheriff Brett Stassi said.

Three people were hurt, including a 75-year-old man who sustained severe, life-threatening head injuries, Stassi said. The man was airlifted to Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center for treatment.

The incident is being investigated by the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, Stassi said.
