Columbus Day Regatta Collision

South Florida's 52nd annual Columbus Day regatta took an ugly turn Sunday when two boats collided on Biscayne Bay, resulting in the death of one young woman, and serious injuries to seven other people. As of this posting, one man is still missing.

The Miami Herald is reporting that a boat which was being towed was hit "violently" by another boat which did not stop - an on-the-water version of a hit-and-run.
