Coast Guard looking for boat that sped away from crash with sailboat

Coast Guard crews are looking for a boat involved in a crash with a sailboat on the Intracoastal Waterway near Broad Creek Sunday night.

Official with U.S. Coast Guard Station Emerald Isle say nobody was hurt and the sailboat was safely towed to a nearby harbor.

However, they say the powerboat sped away from the scene of the crash.

They’re looking for a blue center console that's about 25 feet with a T-top and say it likely has significant damage to the starboard side.

Anyone with more information about the crash or the boat is asked to call Coast Guard Station Emerald Isle at (252) 354-2462.
