A woman injured in a boat crash in Bertie County is recovering after being thrown overboard Tuesday.

Amanda Vincent and her family were in a boat that collided with another boat on the Cashie River Tuesday just before 5:00 p.m. Amanda and her brother were thrown from the boat. Both are on crutches and will need MRIs. Even with the injuries, she says she took quick action, using CPR on Travis until he became responsive. She says her fiance Travis Jackson was driving, and saved their lives by turning the boat to the right at the last second.

"If it wasn't for the reaction of the driver Travis I honestly don't think we'd be here today," said Vincent.

The N.C. Wildlife Commission is investigating. No charges have been filed in the case at this time.
