Girl Killed In Boating Collision Identified

(CBS 42) AUSTIN The girl killed in a boat accident Saturday has been identified. The accident happened at Lake Travis near Paradise Cove.

Texas Parks and Wildlife officials say Richard Smith was driving the boat as it crossed a heavy wave left by another vessel.

Authorities believe the boat was pitched into the air. They believe Caroline Smith, 6, hit her head on the windshield before both she and her father were thrown into the water. She was wearing a life jacket.

Caroline, police say, died on her way to the hospital. Her father suffered a broken leg.
