SKI BEACH - A boat crash Saturday evening on the Delta waterways claimed the life of a young woman and sent five others to hospitals.

Deputy Andrea Lopez with the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office said the collision is being investigated as a hit and run.

Lopez said the five patients who were transported were being treated in hospitals located in San Joaquin and Contra Costa Counties.

Witnesses who were also boating in the area said the boat was just west of Ski Beach halfway submerged, but still had power and lights on.

Deputy Lopez was unsure if all patients were on the same boat, or if some were also on the boat that fled the scene.

Crews with the US Coast Guard responded to assist early on in the incident, but later turned the investigation over to the Sheriff boating unit.

Officials anticipated to continue the investigation well into Sunday, according to the spokeswoman.

Anyone with information regarding this collision is encouraged to contact the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office at (209) 468-4400, or Crime Stoppers at (209) 946-0600 where callers can remain anonymous.
