Seattle Police Harbor units responded to a call of a two-boat collision north of the State Route 520 Bridge. When they arrived, they found two small power boats that sustained a glancing blow when the two passed each other. Both boats were able to return to the Magnuson docks.
A 50-year-old woman was transported to Harborview Medical Center for minor injuries to her ribs and back.
