SAYLORVILLE LAKE — Five people are hurt after their boat capsized on Saylorville Lake Monday evening.

Everyone on the boat was taken ashore and then transported to a hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

Crews were able to drag the boat back to a dock.

The Iowa DNR is investigating what caused the boat to crash and whether alcohol played a role.
