Body Found After Boats Crash On Colorado River; 3 People Still Missing

Two recreational boats collided Saturday in the Colorado River along the California-Arizona border, leaving 13 people injured and two missing, authorities said.

Mohave County Sheriff's Office search and rescue boats look for four people missing on the Colorado River, north of Lake Havasu in Arizona, on September 2, 2018.

Mortensen says Lewis was a California resident, but her hometown hasn't been determined.

This photo released by Los Angeles Sheriff Department Special Enforcement Bureau shows their dive team assisting San Bernardino County Sheriffs in search of three missing persons in the Colorado river Monday, Sept. 3, 2018, north of Lake Havasu, near Topock, Ariz.

Six other people were rushed to local hospitals with less serious injuries and another six sustained minor injuries.

The crash occurred between two popular marinas and near Moabi Regional Park, as people enjoyed the Labor Day weekend.

Two people were airlifted to University Medical Center of Southern Nevada with life-threatening injuries, the Mojave County Sheriff said in a press conference on Sunday evening.

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

Mohave County, which borders the Colorado River, is a county in Arizona.

According to a tweet from SB County Fire, two vessels were involved in a head-on crash that caused one of the boats to sink. None of the passengers on either boat were wearing life jackets, officials said.

Lewis and the three people still missing, had been riding in the Hallet, officials said. Authorities have deployed helicopters to search from overhead while divers look below the water for any sign of the missing people.

One other unidentified boater remained unaccounted for.

Other passengers are believed to have jumped into the water and been carried down river.
