Boat collision on Wednesday


Posted on

On Wednesday (9/19) at approximately 12:30 PM, Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Division of Boating Safety responded to a two vessel collision on Lake Havasu, near Chalk Cliffs. Upon arrival, one vessel was found to be upside down in the water, and its occupants were on board of another boat. It was determined that two 10 foot rigid hull inflatable boats had collided while traveling at approximately 15 miles per hour. The collision caused one boat to flip, ejecting both of its occupants into the water. Both occupants of the boat that flipped were wearing life jackets, and were able to be pulled from the water into a Good Samaritan’s boat. Because of the life jackets that were worn and the quick actions of a Good Samaritan, all involved escaped injury.
