63-year-old woman killed in boating hit-and-run on Magothy River

BALTIMORE -- One person is dead after a boat struck another vessel on the Magothy River and kept going on Sunday, according to authorities.

Laura Slattery, 63, of Pasadena died of her injuries. An adult male who was also a passenger on the boat was also injured during the collision. His condition is currently unknown at this time.

Maryland Natural Resources officers are looking for the operator of a boat who struck the vessel, authorities say.

The collision occurred around 10 p.m., police said.

The operator was navigating a 25-foot-long "white center console vessel," according to authorities.

That person fled the area and was last seen entering Deep Creek in Cape St Claire, Maryland, police said.

Anyone with information about the boat collision or the operator of the boat that fled the area should call 410-260-8888.
