TARPON SPRINGS – A New Port Richey woman suffered non-life threatening injuries after the personal water craft she was riding crashed into a pontoon boat about 4:37 p.m. Sunday, June 15, about 1/2 mile south of Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs.

According to Marine Unit deputies with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, Alisha Pearson-Garvey, 31, of New Port Richey suffered facial injuries when the personal watercraft she was operating crashed into the pontoon boat.

Deputies said she turned a hard right in front of the pontoon and crashed head-on into the vessel.

Pearson-Garvey was thrown off the personal watercraft. The PWC continued underneath the vessel becoming lodged in and breaking the pontoon’s outboard motor.

Pearson-Garvey was transported to Bayonet Point Hospital in Hudson. The pontoon boat operator, Bernard Foigt, 36, of Trinity and the approximate 10 to 12 passengers aboard the vessel were not injured. Deputies said alcohol was not a factor in the crash. Tarpon Springs Fire Department also assisted at the scene.
