FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Quick thinking by a Fort Myers Police Marine Officer helped prevent injury during a boat collision Thursday.

FMPD released video of the incident Thursday.

They say that no injuries occurred, thankfully. But Marine Officer Curr had to make a quick jump onto the dock when another boat suddenly accelerated while docking, sending it crashing into the rear of the FMPD Patrol Boat.

The collision damaged the engines of the patrol boat.

FWC investigated and cited the other boat's driver.
