All three passengers on the boat at the time of the crash have been accounted for and were taken to shore, deputies say. Possible injuries are unknown at this time.

A viewer at the scene of the boat crash told News Channel 8 the boat ran aground on the rock jetty and because of high waves and incoming tide, the boat flipped causing the passengers to go in the water.

No other information has been released at this time.
