ST. AUGUSTINE — Two men were killed and a woman was injured when their boat collided with a dock in northeast Florida.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says the 16-foot open motor boat collided with the dock Sunday night in St. Augustine. The three people on board were returning from a day of boating.

Alicia Babb, Franklin Babb and Warren Hall were ejected into the water. Authorities say another boater was able to rescue Alicia Babb.

The bodies of Hall and Franklin Babb were recovered from the water nearby.

In a separate incident Sunday night, a man jumped from his boat into the St. Johns River. Wildlife officials say James Ricks' passengers tried tossing him a line but he never resurfaced. A search for Ricks continued Monday.
