Area teenager hurt in accident at Lake of the Ozarks

A 14-year-old teenager dislocated his right knee Wednesday evening while riding on a tube being pulled by a boat on the Lake of the Ozarks.

James Albert of Overland Park injured his knee about 5:20 p.m. when the tube he was on hit the wake of another boat, according to the Missouri State Water Patrol. Albert’s right leg fell off the tube, causing the injury.

He was taken to an area hospital. The injury was considered moderate.

Michael Morgan, 42, of Lee’s Summit, was operating the boat towing the tube.
