Authorities say five people are dead and seven are seriously injured in a boat accident near St Augustine, Florida.

Investigators with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said on Sunday, a 6.7-meter Crownline boat rammed the rear of a 7.6-meter tug boat that was tied to a dock. The tug is registered to F&A Enterprises in St Augustine, about 32 kilometers southeast of the accident site along Florida's east coast.

Three of the injured were airlifted from the crash site on the Intracoastal Waterway in St Johns County near the Palm Valley Bridge.
