WHITE, Ga. (AP) Authorities say five people, including a 4-month-old child, were injured in a boat crash on Lake Allatoona in Bartow County. <br /> <br /> Georgia Department of Natural Resources spokesman Mark McKinnon says the crash was reported Saturday night near the mouth of Illinois Creek after a fireworks show at the Allatoona Yacht Club. <br /> <br /> Officials say the injuries were non-life threatening and the occupants of the boat were taken to the Cartersville Medical Center. <br /> <br /> McKinnon says witnesses told authorities a ski boat hit the other vessel from behind. The ski boat traveled up and over the second vessel, causing significant damage. <br /> <br /> McKinnon says the operator of the ski boat was arrested and charged with boating under the influence. <br /> <br /> The boater's name hasn't been released and the crash is under investigation.
