Two people travelling the wrong way around Lake Nagambie on a jetski were taken to hospital after an accident yesterday.
Police said a Melbourne man, 33, was taken to Goulburn Valley Hospital with back and shoulder injuries following the incident.
His passenger was also taken to hospital.
‘‘At about 12pm a few mates from Melbourne were up here riding the wrong way around the lake,’’ Nagambie police Senior Constable Warren Tait said.
‘‘From the story we’ve been told they were riding clockwise (not counter-clockwise) and have come across people riding the correct way.
‘‘They’ve made a right-hand turn to miss them and have ridden up onto an island and have collided with a tree.’’
An Ambulance Victoria spokesperson said they were called to Loddings Lane, Nagambie, at 12.09pm following reports jetski ran up onto land and hit a tree.
‘‘One patient was taken to Goulburn Valley Health with back and shoulder injuries in a serious but stable condition,’’ the spokesperson said.
‘‘His passenger has got a sore leg and was also transported.’’
Police said the new $22000 supercharged jetski was destroyed, with the front end of the machine caved in.
‘‘Pay attention to signs and if you’re going to buy a powerful machine be careful that you know how to ride it,’’ Sen Const Tait said.
Witnesses are being asked to contact Nagambie police on 5794 2526 to help with investigations.
