Marina del Rey boating collision sends woman to hospital

A large boat struck a rowboat off Marina del Rey on Sunday, splitting the smaller boat in half and injuring some of the nine people on board, authorities said.

One woman, whom authorities declined to identify, was airlifted to a hospital, where she was treated and released. Others in her party were treated for minor injuries, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.  

The driver of the larger boat, Peter Sorrento of Chatsworth, was cited for violating state boating rules by not having a lookout to spot the rowboat.
