The Brown County Sheriff's Office reports speed and alcohol are believed to be factors in a boat accident Saturday night which injured four people.

Investigators say the boat hit a breakwall at the Leo Frigo Memorial Bridge over the Fox River at about 8:30 p-m. It came to rest on the gravel road above the Cat Island breakwall, about 100 yards from the shipping channel. One man suffered serious injuries and had to be hospitalized. Two other men and a woman were treated and are expected to be okay. No names have been released.
