1 killed, 3 injured in boat collision off Catalina Island

- One person was killed and three people were injured Sunday morning when two vessels crashed into each other in the water off Catalina Island.

One person remains missing from the crash, about a quarter-mile northeast of Casino Point, which occurred a little after 1:20 a.m. The U.S. Coast Guard received a report that a dingy with five people aboard collided with another vessel, said the Coast Guard's SondraKay Kneen.

One passenger aboard the dingy was confirmed dead. Two suffered minor injuries and one person suffered a head injury. They were rushed to UCLA Medical Center.

The Coast Guard launched a 45-foot response boat and an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter, along with resources from the Baywatch Isthmus, Baywatch Avalon and Avalon Harbor Patrol, to search for the missing passenger, Kneen said.
