SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle police are continuing to investigate a fatal boat crash near Seward Park in Lake Washington east of Seattle.

A 37-year-old woman died and three people were injured after dark Saturday night when a speedboat hit the stern of a sailboat.

Witnesses say the speedboat went up over the stern and hit the woman. Police Officer Renee S. Witt says she died on impact.

The 17-year-old driver of the speedboat and his companion, a 16-year-old girl, were treated for minor injuries. A 45-year-old man on the sailboat was taken to Harborview Medical Center with a back injury. A third man on the sailboat escaped injury.

Witt was unable to say Sunday whether the boy was arrested.
