U.S. Representative Denny Rehberg and state Senator Greg Barkus are among five adults who were injured in a boating accident on Flathead Lake Thursday evening.

Rehberg and Barkus were in stable condition Friday at the Kalispell Regional Medical Center.

The accident happened sometime between 10 p.m. and midnight Thursday when a 22-foot motorboat crashed into rocks on the shoreline at Wayfarers Park near Big Fork, Northwest Regional Supervisor of Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Jim Satterfield said.

Five adults were transported to Kalispell Regional Hospital, two by ambulance and three by Life Flight, Satterfield said.

The incident is under investigation.
