The Arkansas Game & Fish Commission is investigating a fatal boating accident that occurred late Sunday afternoon on the Ouachita River in Union County in the Felsenthal Wildlife Refuge.

The accident involved two boats collectively carrying seven passengers but it isn’t yet clear how the accident occurred.

“We’re going to be reconstructing the accident and it could take up to a week before we know exactly what happened,” said Stephanie Weatherington, Arkansas Game & Fish captain.

Carol Jenkins, 51, of Crossett, was killed in the accident and two others were airlifted to Jefferson Regional Medical Center.
