Jet Ski Collisions, Crashes, and Injuries

The following is a sad story that one moment of recklessness cost a young woman her life. Laura Russell, a 29 year old in Ohio, was killed in a jet ski accident near the Purple People Bridge in Ohio. Nichole Jackson was a recent acquaintance of Ms. Russell and the driver of the other jet ski. With Nichole following Laura, Laura made a sudden quick turn. Nichole tried to let off the gas quickly but could not turn out of the way in time. Laura and Nichole were both thrown off their jet ski. It is assumed that Laura was killed on impact.

Reboarding a capsized Jet Ski :

After a fall the Jet Ski could be over turned completely. You should be familiar with the proper procedure to right the water craft reboard from the rear of the craft.

Most manufactures have placed a decal at the rear or bottom of the craft that indicates the direction to roll the water craft to return it to an upright position. If no decal exists consult your owners manual or ask the dealer.
