Police say a woman suffered head injuries when she was thrown from a jet ski she was riding on in the Hillsborough River.

Tampa police say the driver of the jet ski lost control after crossing into the wake of a passing boat Sunday evening. The jet ski struck a metal sign posted near the center channel. The woman was a passenger on the jet ski.

Authorities say she hit her head on the sign. She was taken to Tampa General Hospital in critical condition.
