A 22 foot power boat with 14 people on board crashed into a docked tug boat on the Intracoastal Waterway on April 12, 2009 at about 7 pm about 25 miles southeast of Jacksonville, Florida.  Five people were killed and nine were injured.  The boat accident was serious enough to be investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board.  Investigators are looking at several factors including speed, capacity of the boat, lighting and whether people were drinking.  

Six victims were treated at Shands Jacksonville Hospital, two were in critical condition, one was in serious and three in fair condition.  The report did not mention where the other three injured were being treated.

The five killed all died at the scene and were aboard the power boat. They were Jacqueline R. Allen, 44, of Jacksonville, Florida; Robert Trenton Craig, 23, of Jacksonville Beach, Florida; Elizabeth L. Rosenfeld, 20, of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida; Inmaculada Pierce, 42, of Orange Park, Florida; and Olivia Rose Carretero, 23, of South Lake Tahoe, California.
