ST. GEORGE — A family had just started their day on the lake at Sand Hollow State Park on Saturday when their boat hit some rocks, leading to a passenger being ejected off the front.

St. George News reports that the boat was traveling at about 25 miles per hour when it collided with the rock. When the passenger was ejected, the boat went over her while she was submerged but did not cause any injuries.

The boat is brand new and the shaft of the propeller broke in half due to the crash.

An ambulance was originally called to the park but was canceled when there were no injuries.

The accident came during a busy weekend when the park was closed off to new visitors.
