An investigation into a commercial jet-boat crash at the
beginning of the month is still being investigated by
Maritime New Zealand.
Two Dart River Jet drivers were stood down after a collision
occurred on January 4 between two company jet-boats - one
carrying 13 passengers.
Maritime NZ senior media and communications adviser Steve
Rendle said the investigation was further ahead, but would
take a ''week or so'' to conclude.
Proceedings were held up when two investigators from
Wellington visited the site of the crash on the Dart River,
as one of the drivers had been concussed and they were unable
to interview him at the time, Mr Rendle said.
The collision occurred about 2km upriver from the Dart River
mouth, at the company's launching site. After the crash, one
of the drivers and a passenger were flown to Lakes District
Hospital in Queenstown with minor injuries.
