Kelly Bradford was injured in a personal watercraft accident near Discovery Bay. She was taken to the intensive care unit of John Muir Medical Center suffering a brain contusion and pelvic and leg injuries. The sheriff’s deputy says she is now expected to live. The jet ski she was riding hit a highway bridge support.
The accident killed Jeffrey Rinne who was riding with Bradford. The coroner reports he died of a blunt-force head injury. It is believed that Bradford was driving the jet ski when the collision occurred. This is the second fatality involving a jet ski in Discovery Bay in the last week.
