Autopsies have been completed for three young O.C. adults killed in a speedboat crash on the Colorado River, authorities said Thursday.

Jonathan Herbert, 21, his sister Jacquel, 18, and Ashley Rollins, 18, were killed last week when their boat was struck by a speedboat driven by Grier D. Rush, a 62-year-old boat builder from Maywood.

Jonathan Herbert drowned, Jacquel Herbert died from blunt-force trauma injuries, and Rollins died from blunt-force trauma with drowning a contributing factor, said Bruce Parks, chief medical examiner at the Pima County Medical Examiners Office in Tucson.

Josh Rogers, 18, of Mission Viejo is hospitalized in Phoenix and making slow progress, said his attorney, Thomas Borchard. His family is in seclusion at a nearby hotel, Borchard said.

Memorial services will be Saturday in Rancho Santa Margarita for Rollins and Sunday in Laguna Hills for the Herberts.
