SALT LAKE CITY -- Parks officials say they have identified a 23-year-old Logan man who died in a boating accident at Lake Powell.

Utah State Parks officials say David Hinton was killed in the accident Wednesday night near the Dangling Rope Marina.

Eugene Swalberg of the parks department says Hinton had been riding in a boat when it struck a submerged island or rock. The impact ejected him, and he was struck by the boat he was thrown from.

The area is near the site of a June accident in which three Utah women died after their boat struck a houseboat and flipped over.

Investigators said the boat's driver was distracted by children on the craft.
