Delaware authorities say a boater was killed and another was injured in a pleasure boat crash at a rocky jetty near Delaware City.

Sgt. Gregory Rhodes, of the Del. Fish and Wildlife Enforcement agency, says the boat may have been going too fast when it hit the jetty near the Reedy Point Bridge early Sunday morning.

Rhodes says the boat's owner died, but the passenger got out of the boat and went for help.

The boat has been impounded while authorities continue their investigation. Rhodes says the boat is a crime scene.
