Three Boats Involved In Fatal Accident
A woman has died after a boating accident at the Columbus Day Regatta in the waters off Crandon Park Friday evening.
One boat was towing a boat that had eight people on board when a third boat collided with the boat being towed.
One woman died in the accident, four others are in critical condition and three are in serious condition, according to Miami Fire.
Two people were taken to Ryder Trauma, three to Mercy and two others to the Jacksonville Memorial Hospital.
The third boat fled the scene of the accident but officials from the Fish and Wild Life Commission and Marine patrol caught up to it.
There were 10 people aboard the boat. None were not injured and they are being questioned by FWC who will determine what charges, if any, they face.
The regatta is taking place at Biscayne National Park over the upcoming Columbus Day weekend
