RENO, Nev. (CBS/AP) — South Lake Tahoe police say a family outing on personal watercraft proved dangerous when a mother and father, each with a child as a passenger, crashed at Lake Tahoe.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports the family from San Jose had rented two watercrafts from the Timber Cove Marina.

Each parent drove one watercraft with a child seated on the back. Police say the mother’s craft crossed in front of the father’s path and he smashed into her at 30 mph Monday morning.

The 7-year-old daughter suffered severe injuries to her leg and foot and was flown to a Reno hospital. A 5-year-old boy and his mother were taken to Barton Hospital with moderate head and leg injuries. Police say the father was relatively unharmed.
