Officials say a vessel carrying at least two people ran aground at a beach in Ventura County on Sunday night.

An eyewitness described the boat at Silver Strand Beach as a 40- to 50-foot sailboat.

Harbor Patrol, the Ventura County Fire and Oxnard Fire departments responded to the incident about 9:50 p.m.

It's unclear as to why or how the captain apparently lost control of the boat.

No one was seriously injured.
