COEUR D'ALENE-- Coeur d’Alene man might have broken his leg after crashing his boat into a tree.

It happened Wednesday around 4:30 p.m. across from Arrow Point on Lake Coeur d’Alene.

Officials arrived to find the boat completely out of water.

Kootenai County deputies said 35-year-old Kevin Jewell was not paying attention when he drove his boat onto land and hit the tree. The investigation is ongoing, but deputies believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

Jewell suffered only minor injuries and his passenger was not hurt.
