A teenage boy was flown to a hospital after a crash on Cherokee Lake over the Memorial Day weekend. 

The collision happened around 12:30 p.m. Sunday upstream of the Fall Creek Marina, according to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.

TWRA says a personal watercraft with two Greeneville men onboard was traveling toward a cove when it collided with another personal watercraft that was being operated by a 16-year old male from Morristown.

The juvenile was flown to UT Medical Center in Knoxville with a broken femur and compound leg fracture. 

The incident is being investigated by Hawkins County Wildlife Officer Chris Seay.
