ROANOKE, W.Va. (AP) — A woman was killed and two others were injured in a tubing accident on Stonewall Jackson Lake in West Virginia, authorities said.
A boat was pulling the women on a tube Sunday evening near the Vandalia boat ramp, news outlets reported, citing a statement from the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources. It appears the driver of the boat swung the tube too close to a rock wall causing a collision, the statement said.
