SAN DIEGO — Four people are still missing after a head-on boat crash that injured 13 others in the Colorado River in San Bernardino County Saturday.

The San Bernardino Fire Department confirmed Sunday that one victim was airlifted for life-threatening injuries, six people were transported to local hospitals, and six others were triaged for minor injuries. Five of those with minor injuries were treated and released at the scene.

Search efforts resumed Sunday near the California-Arizona border after operations were suspended Saturday night.

Authorities told FOX 5 sister station KTLA that the two vessels collided on the river near Topock Gorge and Park Moabi Channel around 9 p.m. Saturday. “During the collision, all subjects from both boats were ejected into the water, and both boats sank,” officials said.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
