Orange County -- One of the victims in a Sunday morning boating crash on Lake Irma in east Orange County died from her injuries, Sgt. Carlos Torres, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Office, said Monday.

Shelby Harper, 20, of Orlando, was airlifted to Orlando Regional Medical Center after a speedboat in which she was riding at about 5 a.m. Sunday crashed into a dock off north Econlockhatchee Trail, critically injuring Harper and two others. Harper was pronounced dead at the hospital, Torres said.


In Florida boats striking docks with devasting results is common.  The cause of such allisions is often varied.
