MIAMI (AP) — Authorities say a woman died after the boat she was riding in crashed into a concrete piling in Miami.

Jorge Pino, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, says the boat the woman’s husband was driving ran into a piling underneath the MacArthur Causeway bridge late Saturday. Pino tells the Miami Herald the woman’s body became lodged between the boat and the piling.

The unidentified woman was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Pino says the boat was going slow at the time of the crash.

No further information has been released.
