MONETA, Va. (AP) -- Authorities have identified a man who was killed when two boats collided on Smith Mountain Lake.

The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries says 37-year-old Timothy O'Quinn of Botetourt County was a passenger in one of the boats.

Sgt. Karl Martin with the department tells media outlets that none of the boats' occupants was wearing a life jacket.

Martin says all of the boaters were participating in a fishing tournament when the accident occurred Friday night.
