Saturday, a dive team recovered the body of a man involved in a boating accident on Smith Mountain Lake. The Department of Game and Inland Fisheries says two boats collided near Bernard's Landing Friday night.

Investigators say five people were on the boats when the accident happened. One person was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

“Nighttime activity is quite dangerous obviously last night there's not a lot of moon and quite dark the idea is at night to slow down and wear your life jacket,” said Karl Martin from VDGIF

37-years-old Timothy O'Quinn from Bottetourt County was killed in the accident.
