Two people were rushed to hospital after the Ortega River crash, according to the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department.
A JFRD spokesperson said at least one person was critically injured, according to Eric Proswimmer. Six people were on the boat, said Karen Parker of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission.
Brosswimer said that part of the Ortega Bridge that was raised was descending, and when the boat attempted to descend, the boat called the bridge.
A JFRD spokesperson said the bridge will require inspection before it can be lifted again. Late at night, I noticed the drawbridge being raised and the traffic on the water moving under the bridge.
