Four people are missing after two boats crashed and sunk on the Colorado River, ejecting more than a dozen people who were on board, authorities said Sunday.

Thirteen people were injured in the crash and one female victim sustained life-threatening injuries.

According to a brief statement released by the Mohave County Sheriff's Office, crews recovered the body of 24-year-old Kirra Drury at around 12:35 p.m. Tuesday.

Mortensen says Lewis was a California resident, but her hometown hasn't been determined.

Authorities are searching for four people who remain missing. Another seven were taken to hospitals by ambulance and treated for less serious injuries, officials said.

A stretch of the Colorado River was closed between Topock Gorge and Sandbar as divers renewed search efforts for the missing boaters again Tuesday morning, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The crash occurred between two popular marinas and near California's Moabi Regional Park. The Colorado River flows along the Arizona-California border.

Two people were critically injured in the crash and flown to the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas, officials said. Some passengers in the boats were thrown into the water upon collision while others jumped.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, Arizona Department of Public Service Air Rescue and Care Flight all deployed helicopters in the search. The water ranged in depth from very shallow to 30 feet, he said.

Rescuers have yet to locate the other three missing individuals, two women and a man.

Rescue crews and helicopters scoured the area until 9pm, then the search mission was suspended as it became too unsafe for divers to be in the flowing water after dark. The Mohave County Sheriff's Office also stated that divers were in the area to conduct a search and warned boaters in the area to do so with caution.
