A vigil will be held Tuesday for two men killed last week in boating accident at El Capitan Reservoir.
Russell Mendez, 20, and Jeffry Ingram, 21, were fishing in the Tree Hole area of the reservoir when their boat was struck by an oncoming boat.
According to the San Diego County Medical Examiner, the men were traveling northeast at a slow speed as a boat traveling south at a high rate of speed failed to see them and hit the side of their boat.
Mendez and Ingram were killed in the collision. Two people in the other vessel were injured.
No word on if the driver or passenger in the other boat who suffered minor injuries will face any charges.
The investigation is in the hands of the Northern Division of the San Diego Police Department.
On Monday, the El Capitan Reservoir was open but it was fairly quiet. No water sports were allowed on the lake.
Boaters also told NBC 7 more fishermen are heading out to the crash area because of the drought and lower water levels.
The area sticks out into the lake and going around it is like going around a difficult street corner, they said.
The victims’ relatives say Mendez and Ingram enjoyed fishing at Lake Murray so they have planned a memorial there beginning at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
There is a fundraising website set up by Michael Ingram asking for donations to help pay for memorial services and pay off the loan for a new truck that one of the men signed just before the crash.
