A deadly crash between two personal watercrafts occurred Wednesday afternoon off Incline Beach at Incline Village. The victim is Dawn Finn, 52 from Westwood, New Jersey. The other watercraft was driven by the victim’s 21 year-old daughter.
Both watercrafts, generically known as Jet Skis, were rentals from Incline Village’s Action Water Sports. The mother and daughter were approximately 200 yards off shore when the daughter struck the mother. The daughter was uninjured in the collision.
Finn was taken to Incline Village Community Hospital where she was pronounced dead from head trauma. Finn and her daughter were in town with other relatives for a wedding. Some of the relatives witnessed the crash from the beach.
The crash is still under investigation, but alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash.
