DOUBLE SPRINGS, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a 14-year-old girl has died in a boating accident on an Alabama lake. 

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s Marine Patrol Division says the teenager was being pulled in an intertube on Smith Lake when the accident happened around 5 p.m. Saturday.

The agency says it responded to the Winston County area of the lake, which is about 70 miles north of Birmingham. Officials didn't comment further on the circumstances surrounding the accident.

The victim wasn't immediately identified. The agency was continuing to investigate.
