Search on for boat that fatally struck swimmer

HUNTSVILLE, Utah (AP) – Weber County authorities are looking for a boat that fatally hit a swimmer in the waters of Pineview Reservoir over the weekend. A 49-year-old woman from Ogden has died after she was struck shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday in the Spring Creek Cove area of the reservoir. Deputies say a bystander heard the woman screaming and came to her aid in a row boat. They say he held her above water until a sheriff’s patrol boat arrived at the scene. The woman died of her injuries while in the patrol boat. Officials have not yet released the woman’s name. They are searching for the driver of the boat, who they say may not know the boat hit the swimmer.
