DEALE, Md. (WUSA) - A pleasure boat crashed into a jetty near Rockhold Creek on Thursday evening, injuring at least two people, according to a spokesperson for the Anne Arundel County Fire Department.

The accident location in the Chesapeake Bay is on the line between Anne Arundel and Calvert Counties, prompting a rescue response from both counties.

Four adults were on the boat, two who sustained non-life threatening injuries. A rescue boat from Calvert County reached the crash site first, and took all of the adults to a nearby marina.

The two who were injured were taken to Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis. The other two refused treatment.

The boat ran into the jetty, which juts out along the shoreline protecting the bay near the Rockhold Creek, according to the spokesperson.

The cause of the accident is being investigated. There are no details on the size or type of boat involved and none of those aboard have been identified.
