The names of the three women who died in a San Dimas boat crash were released Monday.

The women were killed Saturday afternoon when their jet ski crashed into a 21-foot powerboat in Puddingstone Reservoir at Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park, injuring four others.

The women were identified as Maricon Yeso, 34, of Escondido; her mother, Aurora Yeso, 59, of San Dimas; and Anesia Barba Bautista, 59, of Glendora.

They were pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver and three occupants of the motor boat were treated for injuries at hospitals and released, according to a statement from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

Detectives are working with an accident re-creation specialist from the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation to learn the cause of the collision. Authorities have said the powerboat driver was not intoxicated. It was unclear whether the women who died were intoxicated.

Officials asked anyone with information to contact the L.A. County Sheriff's Department homicide bureau at (323) 890-5500. Anonymous calls may be made to Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
