13 hurt, 2 missing after boat collision on Colorado River

Nine others were taken to local hospitals by ambulance.

At least 13 people have been injured and two others are missing and presumed drowned after two private boats collided head-on in southern California.

The occupants of both vessels were thrown overboard on impact.

Rescue boats, divers and helicopters are searching for survivors.

Both boats sank and passing boaters pulled crash victims from the water.

One person was airlifted from the scene in critical condition with a head injury, said sheriff's office spokeswoman Anita Mortensen.

Hamilton admits 'intense' Vettel clash key to win
Bottas was told to hold Raikkonen up, a job he did tremendously as Hamilton closed in to within a second. When the lights went out, Raikkonen pulled away to lead, as Hamilton attacked.

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

Rescuers had to call off the search for the missing until Sunday morning because it was too unsafe for divers to swim in the river after dark.

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 searches for the missing people will restart Sunday morning. They determined that a Hallett boat, occupied by 10 people, and a Sleek Craft, with six people on board, collided head-on, authorities said. Dive and search operations in the area of the crash are being conducted by the Mohave County Sheriff's Office with the assistance of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department. Sherwin said darkness undoubtedly played a role in the crash.

Rescue crews responded to a boat collision Saturday night near the Pirate Cove Resort & Marina in Needles, California.
