A 16-year old girl was injured when she was thrown from a boat that ran aground at the Jersey shore Friday night. The U.S. Coast Guard says it received a call at 6:30 p.m. that a 32-foot boat named "Pain Killer" had run aground in Sunset Lake north of Cape May Harbor.

Officials say three people were aboard the boat. One of them, 16-year old Jessica Catarese, was ejected from the boat when it hit land and suffered head injuries.

She was transported by a rescue boat to a marina in Wildwood, and from there transferred to Cape Regional Medical Center in Cape May Court House.

There is no word on her condition or why the boat ran aground.
