    Ryan Mallow, an Enumclaw native, was in a U-100 Leland boat when he was trailing Steve David coming into a turn.

    Mallow’s hydroplane flipped 360 degrees.

    Mallow was injured and taken to a local hospital with no serious injuries.

    In August, the hydroplanes will take over Lake Washington for Seafair.
