Betty B. Pyle, 74, of Ashburn, Virginia, attempted to back out of a slip, while in forward gear and struck the unoccupied Sea Ray, which was docked. Both vessels were listed with extensive damage.
Pyle, not listed with a safety device, did not have any injuries, according to the report.
The second incident occurred at approximately 10:30 p.m. at the 5.2-mile marker of Lick Branch Cove in Morgan County involving a 1999 Fountain vessel.
According to the report, Danny C. Williams, 50, of South Beloit, Illinois, was piloting the vessel eastbound with Lisa M. Williams, 52, also of South Beloit, as a passenger when the "driver did not see a breakwater and drove over it."
Lisa Williams was listed with minor injuries and refused medical treatment at the scene. Both involved were listed with safety devices.
The vessel damage was listed as extensive.
No citations or arrests were listed with either incident, according to MSHP arrest reports.
