A Blue Springs man was injured when two boats collided on Blue Springs Lake early Sunday evening.


Donne E. McKimmey, 40, of Blue Springs, was at the helm of a 1987 Bayliner that collided at about 5:35 p.m. with a 2018 Malibu driven by Andrew T. Davis, 23 of Lee’s Summit.


The Missouri State Highway Patrol says McKimmey saw the other boat coming and tried to veer but was struck on the left side. The report does not indicate whether either boat had passengers.


McKimmey was taken to a hospital with what the Highway Patrol called moderate injuries. Both boats had minor damage.
