GAINESVILLE, Ga--DNR Police are searching  for a possible pontoon-boat involved in a hit-and -run crash off Old Federal Park on Lake Lanier around midnight Friday.

Sergeant Greg Colson, of the Department of Natural Resources, says two occupants on a  See-Doo jet boat were injured when their boat was struck by another watercraft that fled the scene.
