NEEDLES, CA – A weekend boat crash on the Colorado River has injured three people.

The Mohave Daily News of Bullhead City, Ariz. says it happened late Saturday afternoon near Needles, Calif.

Jodi Miller of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department says a 21-foot Day Cruiser was in choppy, busy waters when the skipper looked back to tell his passengers to change positions because the boat was leaning.

Miller says when he turned back around, he couldn’t avoid hitting an anchored boat.

The crash injured two men and a woman on the anchored boat, all from California. Miller says there’s no immediate word on their conditions Tuesday morning.

Miller says alcohol wasn’t believed to be a factor in the crash. Nobody was arrested but the investigation continues.
