WATCH: Powerboat flips over during Key West race

- A frightening crash involving a powerboat occurred in Key West.

Dramatic video captured the super boat crash at the Key West World Championship on Friday. CT Marine’s boat climbed over the rear of another boat and landed upside down in Key West Harbor. Fortunately, no one was hurt.

 As rescue vessels arrived, the boat’s crew emerged through the boat’s bottom escape hatch. The boat’s driver was able to pilot the vessel back to the dock.

The championship continued through Sunday. Offshore powerboat racers John Tomlinson and Myrick Coil defended Performance Boat Center's Superboat-class title with a well-timed win on the final racing day.

Miami throttleman Tomlinson and driver Coil of Osage Beach, Missouri, began Sunday's race in second place after preliminary battles last Wednesday and Friday.

But they quickly pulled ahead of rival WHM Motorsports, driven by William Mauff of East Setauket, New York, and throttled by Jay Muller of Sallie River, New Jersey.
