The Fulton County Sheriff's Office says it's investigating a Saturday afternoon boat crash on the Great Sacandaga Lake.
Authorities say it happened in front of Highland Avenue near Vandenburgh Point. They say one boat was floating in the bay when a second boat towing a wakeboarder slammed into the other boat.
Officials say the driver was watching the wakeboarder and not looking at the area in front of him.
They say several people saw the crash and went to help the boaters and get them to shore safely. Authorities say four people were injured, but are expected to be okay.
They say the boater with the wakeboarder will be ticketed.
