KANAB, Utah -- Authorities in Kane County say one person is dead, two are missing and others are injured after an accident in Lake Powell involving a motorboat and a house boat.

Kane County Emergency Services officials say the National Park Service got a call about 8 a.m. Thursday reporting an accident near Dangling Rope Marina.

Officials say a female on the motorboat is dead, while two other females are missing in the water. Others on the boat were injured, including at least one person who was taken away in an air ambulance.

Kane County officials say the remote location has made it difficult to get all the details about the accident. No victim names have been released.
