A person was taken to the hospital on Tuesday after a hit-and-run involving a boat on Candlewood Lake.

Officials from the Dept. of Energy and Environmental Protection said the accident happened at the Squantz boat launch on Candlewood Lake.

EnCon Police arrested Gary Morrone, 65, of Oakville for the crash.

The female victim was rescued from the water by a Good Samaritan vessel. She was brought to Danbury hospital for serious injuries.

Morrone was arrested for reckless operations of a vessel, failure to help collision victim, and failure to notify law enforcement of injury.

He was released on a $10,000 bond and will be in Danbury Court next month.
