Scary video shows 2 boats crash at Gulfport Grand Prix

Despite the crash, both drivers declined medical care.

GULFPORT, Fla. — Two drivers are OK but a little banged up after their boats crashed during a heat during the Gulfport Grand Prix.

It happened Sunday around noon.

10News reporter Madison Alworth had just started a Facebook Live video to show off the day's events when the crash happened just seconds later. 

The boats' drivers, Fred Derr and Chris Rinker, were removed and conscious after the crash, Alworth reports. One of them appeared to be clutching his shoulder.

Gulfport Fire Rescue says both men signed a release declining medical treatment.

The third annual Gulfport Grand Prix takes over the downtown area for several days, featuring activities in and around the waterfront.
