JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The National Transportation Safety Board has launched an investigation in Florida of the fatal power boat accident that killed five people, including a woman from South Lake Tahoe.
23-year-old Olivia Rose Carretero was among those killed in the crash Sunday night when the 22-foot power boat crashed into the rear of the tug on Florida's east coast about 25 miles southeast of Jacksonville. Nine people also were injured.
NTSB member Deborah Hersman says the the NTSB doesn't investigate many boating accidents. But she says this case with five fatalities and nine injuries met the agency's criteria for a serious accident that warranted special attention.
