A near miss on the water now means a Cambridge teen is facing a charge under the Canada Shipping Act.

The incident happened Saturday afternoon on Lake Erie, near Long Point Bay.

Ontario Provincial Police allege the operator of a jet ski approached another vessel, which almost resulted in a collision.

That's when police were contacted.

Officers patrolling the lake subsequently located the operator and conducted an investigation.

As a result, police have charged a 17-year-old with operating vessel in a careless manner, without due care and attention or without reasonable consideration for other persons.
