The body of Brian Grabowski, 50, of Tulare was found Tuesday morning and Christine Lewis, 51, of Visalia was found Monday.

The crash happened Saturday night on the river between Needles, California, and Topock, Arizona, north of Lake Havasu, officials said. The sheriff's office said the boats -- one moving north carrying 10 people, the other moving south and carrying six people -- collided head-on.

All those on board the boats were thrown into the water and both boats sank, the sheriff's department said. Nine people were injured, officials said.

No one in either boat was wearing a life jacket, Mohave County Sheriff Doug Schuster said.
