Maryland Natural Resources police believe alcohol was a factor in a boating accident on Kent Island that injured four people, one of them critically.
Police say Jeff Souder of Chester was piloting a boat that ran aground Saturday night off Cox Creek.
Souder was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in critical condition. A male passenger was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, and two women were taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police say Souder was having engine trouble and the global positioning system on his 30-foot boat was not operating properly. Police believe he had been drinking.
