California woman dies in jet ski accident on Colorado River

LAUGHLIN, Nev. (AP) - Authorities say a California woman has died after the jet ski she was riding collided with a boat on the Colorado River near Laughlin, Nevada.

The name and hometown of the 43-year-old woman wasn't immediately released.

Witnesses reported the jet ski was traveling at a high rate of speed Sunday night when it struck the front of a rental jet boat near the buoy line at Davis Dam.

The woman was pronounced dead at a hospital in Bullhead City, Arizona.

Nevada Department of Wildlife officials say an autopsy will be performed on the woman as investigators attempt to determine the cause of the accident.
