The Missouri State Highway Patrol says two boats collided. One boat was driven by Timothy Cox of Adel and another by Cletus Barsch of Saint Joseph. Barsch tried turning left to avoid a collision, but Cox's boat ended up hitting the bow.

Barsch was arrested on suspicion of operating while intoxicated.
