Drought conditions at Shasta Lake contributed to a boating accident there Thursday afternoon. According to the sheriff's office, an Oregon man was cruising along the Sacramento arm of the lake at 20 miles per hour when he ran into a recently exposed island. The ski boat became grounded.

A woman riding in the boat received minor injuries after being thrown into the windshield. Authorities say alcohol and drugs were not factors.
