BROOKFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — A sunny, summer day out on Candlewood Lake quickly turned into a frightening scene for several people, when three boats collided in Brookfield on Tuesday afternoon.

At around 4:30 p.m., crews with the Candlewood Lake Authority responded to the Echo Bay Marina, where authorities say a pontoon boat collided with two other vessels, a cabin cruiser and a motor boat, as it was attempting to dock.

According to the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, a dozen people were on board the pontoon boat when it crashed while approaching the dock. Three of the boaters were taken to Danbury Hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Officials have not identified the three people injured in the boat crash.

DEEP EnCon Police are investigating the accident.
