West Virginia News

ROANOKE, W.Va. (AP) — Authorities say a woman was killed and two others were injured in a tubing accident on Stonewall Jackson Lake in West Virginia.

News outlets cited a statement from the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources in reporting that a boat was pulling the women on a tube Sunday evening near the Vandalia boat ramp.

The statement says it appears the driver of the boat swung the tube too close to a rock wall causing a collision.

Officials say one woman died and two others were flown to a hospital with serious injuries.
