TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say two teens were injured during a tubing accident after crashing into a dock in southwest Florida.

Florida Fish and Wildlife officials say the 16 and 18-year-old old boys were being pulled by a wave runner when another boat passed them, forcing the wave runner to change its course. That's when authorities say the tube slid into the dock.

The unidentified boys were transported to the hospital. Their conditions were not known.
