BOISE -- A 10-year-old boy has been critically injured in a jet ski accident on C.J. Strike Reservoir, which is about 20 miles south of Mountain Home.

The Owyhee County Sheriff's Office tells us the accident happened Friday evening. The boy collided with an outboard boat. He was flown by air ambulance to a hospital in Boise. As of Sunday afternoon, the boy was still in critical condition. His name or where he is from has not been released.

Jody Olsen with the Black Sands Resort, near where the accident happened, tells us the boy was riding the jet ski alone. She says the impact of the crash sent two men in the boat into the water, but they are OK.

Olsen says the jet ski is pretty mangled from the crash. It remained on the beach as of Sunday evening.
