LAKE HAVASU, AZ (3TV/CBS 5)-- The Mohave Country Sheriff's Division of Boating Safety is asking people to be aware of weather and wind conditions  following a boat crash over the weekend.

The boat crash occurred Saturday at Lake Havasu State Park. 

According to deputies, a 2002, 25-foot Eliminator boat was going 40 miles an hour when it struck a large wave.

This sent three passengers and two dogs flying into the water.

One person was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Mohave County Sheriff's Office say that wind speeds were 30 miles an hour that day, which created some choppy water.

The boat's driver was cited for speeding.
