      Woman dies in boating accident on Lake Marion

      SUMMERTON, S.C. (AP) -- Authorities say a Sumter woman has died in an early morning boating wreck on Lake Marion.

      Clarendon County Deputy Coroner Charles Jackson told The Sumter Item that Hailey Bordeaux was on an idling boat with her boyfriend and another couple around 12:30 a.m. Friday when it was hit by another boat speeding through the area.

      Jackson says Bordeaux died a short time later at the hospital. There was no word of injuries for the other people involved in the crash.

      The Department of Natural Resources is investigating the wreck. No charges have been filed.
