Sunday was a busy time for lake-area emergency responders following a pair of incidents on land and water.

According to Chief Todd Ohlerich of Smith Mountain Lake Marine Volunteer Fire/Rescue, fire boats were called to the area of channel marker R39 around 5 p.m. Sunday in reference to a personal watercraft accident.

Ohlerich said a woman accidentally hit the throttle on her personal watercraft and hit a dock. The woman was taken to Carilion Roanoke Memorial hospital with a leg injury, he said.
