Finniss boat crash leaves two people dead, two others injured

Two men have died after two boats collided in Finniss, south of Adelaide, this afternoon. Another two people are seriously injured.

Police confirmed that an aluminium dinghy and inflatable dinghy – with two people in each – collided about 4pm on Sunday.

The two men who died were a driver of the inflatable boat, a 37-year-old man from Sellicks Hill, and a passenger in the aluminium boat, a 40-year-old man from Murray Bridge.

The other two people on the boats – a 36-year-old man from Port Noarlunga South and 42-year-old woman from Yankalilla – were both taken to the Flinders Medical Centre with serious injuries.

Police are seeking information from witnesses, especially two people who were fishing nearby and assisted paramedics.
