A sailboat crew lost control of their vessel and crashed into the Aerial Lift Bridge on Wednesday. 

Joaquin Figueroa shot a video of the boat, which lost its mast in the incident. Figueroa said it looked like the crew was trying to steer the craft back out into the lake, but the high winds prevented them from avoiding the bridge, which was down at the time.

No further information was available Wednesday night.
