One person still hospitalized after BSL boating accident

BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) - One person is still hospitalized after a late night boating accident Sunday evening. It happened around 10:30pm.

Three people were sent to the hospital early Monday morning after the boat they were on crashed into a piling right in the middle of the bridge on the bay side.

Three people suffered serious injuries, all seven were taken to Memorial Hospital in Gulfport. Six of the victims were released Monday morning, but one person was transferred to another hospital.

Bay St. Louis Police Chief Tom Burleson told WLOX News that the five men and two women on board were from the New Orleans area. Their ages range from 18 to 40s.  

Chief Burleson was out floundering Sunday night and was the first one on the scene. He said all the victims were wearing their life jackets.

He also said the lights on the underside of the bridge were not on, and haven't been on since Hurricane Gustav.

Brad Kessie will have more on this story later today on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
