The Law Enforcement Bureau of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources says a large black center-console boat and a blue-and-white 19-foot Bayliner runabout collided near LeClaire. The DNR says 61-year-old Craig Verbeke died Wednesday at University of Iowa Hospitals, while 52-year-old Dr. Anita Pinc , died at the scene.
Both were from Moline, Illinois, and they were engaged to be married next year. Dr. Pinc was a partner at a Davenport-based obstetrics & gynecology firm. A third person was hurt. The DNR urges witnesses of the crash to come forward.
