A Missouri man died after a boating accident at Grand Lake. It happened over the weekend at the Wolf Point area on Elk River.

Authorities say 50-year-old Doren Hobart was driving a 15-foot airboat at a high rate of speed when it struck a boatlift. The boatlift was inside a boat dock.

Hobart was ejected from the boat. The Lake Patrol says alcohol may have been a factor.
