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.
A 24-year-old Ventura woman has been identified as one of two people whose bodies were recovered from the Colorado River on Tuesday amid the search for several missing people following a weekend boat crash along the California-Arizona border, authorities said.
Lewis and the three people still missing, had been riding in the Hallet, officials said. The boat in which the two missing people were passengers was submerged by the collision according to a report from the Chicago Tribune.
More than 60 crew members from Arizona and California continued to search on boats at sunrise Monday, tracking their progress with a computer program that mapped the riverbed, according to USA Today.
The Moabi Regional Park is a popular water recreation area along the California border with Arizona.
Labor Day Weekend fun turned into a nightmare when a Hallet boat occupied by 10 people and a Sleek Craft boat that carried six passengers collided at Pirate Cove Marina.
It has not been determined when speed played a factor in the crash, Anita Mortensen, a sheriff's spokeswoman, said.
At about 8:03 pm, San Bernardino County Fire was requested to respond to a boating collision in the waters of the Colorado River in Park Moabi. Efforts resumed after daybreak Sunday, and authorities closed off a stretch of the river where the search was taking place.
