    Two boaters are recovering at Ryder Trauma Center from injuries sustained in a hit-and-run crash in the waters off Coconut Grove late Saturday. The collision occurred about two and a half miles off Dinner Key Marina when a speeding boat hit a 13-foot Boston Whaler carrying a couple, a man and a woman who were returning from Nixon Beach, Miami Fire Rescue officials said. Miami Fire Rescue spokesman Ignatius Carroll said the woman was lucky to have relied on a cell phone.

    The man, described as a white Latin male about 40 years old, was struck at about 5:30 a.m. and ended up in a field, police said.

    “He was alive when he was on the floor. He was asking for help, and I guess he just died on the spot, and someone tried to drag him towards that grass field over there,” witness Danny Rodriguez said.
