  • A boat collision near Moabi Regional Park on Saturday evening resulted in 13 injuries and two missing people authorities said

Three people are missing after two boats collided on the Colorado River along the California-Arizona border, sheriff's department officials said Sunday.

The body of Christine Lewis, 51, of Visalia, California, was located at about 7:30 a.m. Monday, downstream of Topock, Arizona, near the California border, the Mohave County Sheriff's Office said.

-Four people are missing after two boats crashed and sunk on the Colorado River, ejecting more than a dozen people who were on board, authorities said Sunday.

Furthermore, Sheriff Doug Schuster said that none of the boaters were wearing life vests, which are not required by law.

An emergency dispatcher report cited both boats traveling at around 50 miles per hour when they collided.

He was transported to an area hospital by ground ambulance before being flown to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, officials said.

According to MCSO, a Hallett Boat carrying 10 people and Sleek Craft with six people aboard crashed head-on between Pirates Cove and the Topock Marina.

Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Anita Mortensen said Monday that investigators had yet to determine what role speed might have played in the accident.

"We haven't come up with anything on contributing factors yet", she said, adding that efforts are focused on finding the missing boaters.

Units from the Mohave County Sheriff's Office Division of Boating Safety photographed on September 2, 2018, the day after a boating crash on the Colorado River.

Cops say the river may be closed intermittently near the crash site as searches continue to take place. The search for them has been postponed because of darkness.

Rescuers had to call off the search for the missing until Sunday morning because it was too risky for divers to swim in the river after dark. The Mohave County Sheriff's Office said it will continue to patrol the Colorado River until all passengers are accounted for.
