SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a 25-year-old woman died Sunday after a boating accident on the Ogeechee River in the Savannah area.

The Savannah Morning News reports that police and paramedics responded to King's Ferry boat ramp off U.S. 17 around 5:23 p.m. Sunday.

Georgia Department of Natural Resources Capt. Doug Lewis said Shana Crozier of Savannah was pronounced dead at the scene.

Lewis said investigators were told that a boat went under a train trestle east of the ramp in the Ogeechee River in Chatham County when Crozier was hit by the trestle. Authorities say Crozier stood up in the boat and hit the trestle.

There were other occupants in the boat, which Lewis said was about 18 feet long.
