Woman found dead, three people missing in Arizona boat crash

A recreational boat

A man and a woman who were among four people killed when two pleasure boats collided on the Colorado River over the weekend have been accounted for, authorities said.

"We are shocked and heartbroken to learn about the passing of one of our own in this weekend's tragic Colorado River boat crash", said Gary Herbst, Kaweah Delta's CEO. Nine people were injured, 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.

The body of Californian woman Kirra Drury was the latest to be retrieved from the Colorado River when police divers pulled the 24-year-old out of the water at about 12.35pm on Tuesday (Californian time).

Lewis was missing since about 8 p.m. Saturday, when a northbound Hallet boat carrying 10 people collided with a southbound Sleekcraft, which carried six people, according to officials.

Sheriff Doug Schuster of the Mohave County Sheriff's Office said that none of the 16 boaters involved in the crash were wearing life vests, which are not required by law.

Trump escalates attacks on his attorney general
Rarely, though, has he made it so explicit that he views the Justice Department as a political tool that is now being misused. Attorney Preet Bharara called Trump's tweet "next level insane , inappropriate, unethical, stupid, incriminating".

The crash happened in Moabi Regional Park, a popular water recreation area along the border about 290 miles east of Los Angeles.

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.

Divers were set to search up until sundown on Sunday for the four missing, the sheriff's office said.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, Arizona Department of Public Service Air Rescue and Care Flight all deployed helicopters in the search. The river's water can range from shallow to 30 feet deep.

The cause of the accident was under investigation, Schuster said. Efforts resumed after daybreak Sunday, and authorities closed off a stretch of the river where the search was taking place.
