New was uncertain of the details of what happened in the jet ski crash but he knew it was a collision and said the person appeared to suffer a broken leg.

Right after that incident, he said they were called to another motorcycle incident on Illinois Route 100 close to Elsah and a motorcyclist had to be airlifted from that scene.
