GEIST, Ind. — Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating a single boat accident that occurred on Geist Reservoir Saturday night.

At approximately 8:30 p.m., rescue teams were dispatched to the marina at Geist Reservoir for a woman that was injured in an accident involving a personal water craft.

Once on scene, officers discovered that Minahil Khan, 26, of Islamabad, Pakistan was driving a Kawasaki jet ski with a juvenile passenger when she struck a large wave.  This impact caused both Khan and the passenger to be thrown from the jet ski.  Khan suffered a broken right leg as a result of the accident.

The juvenile passenger was calm enough to flag down a passing boat that transported both to the Geist Marina.  Khan was then transported to St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis in good condition.

Investigators say that Khan had limited operating experience and that this likely played a role in the incident.  Both Khan and the juvenile passenger were wearing life jackets.
