On Wednesday (6/3) at approximately 10:30 PM, The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Division of Boating Safety along with the Lake Havasu City Police and Fire Departments were dispatched to Lake Havasu in the area of Site 6 for a boat collision. Multiple callers advised that two boats had collided, and multiple victims were in the water. Upon Deputies arrival by boat, a large debris field was located near Site 6. A male victim was found in the debris and pulled from the water by Boating Deputies. It was also learned that a second male victim had already been pulled from the water by a Good Samaritan. The male that was pulled from the water by Deputies was pronounced deceased on scene, and was identified as Richard Keith Williams, 66 of Phoenix. The second victim was transported to Havasu Regional Medical Center in critical condition.

It was determined that a 1996 15 foot Bayliner boat occupied by two males, was traveling southeast on Lake Havasu near Site 6 when it struck a 1994 22 foot Larson boat, which was traveling northwest near Site 6. Both boats struck each other nearly head on at approximately 40 miles per hour. It was determined that the occupants of the Larson were uninjured, and the injured and deceased male were both occupants from the Bayliner boat. At this time alcohol and drugs are possibly a factor, along with speed and lighting conditions contributing to the crash. This incident is still under investigation.
