The Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency says a fatality and an injury took place in a boat explosion at the Montgomery County Conservation Club in Clarksville yesterday.

Authorities said the initial investigation shows the watercraft, a 38-foot Carver, had just refueled and was getting underway when the explosion happened. Both the driver of the boat and a passenger were ejected into the water.

The passenger, a 54-year-old Clarksville woman, was taken to a hospital where she passed away. The operator of the boat, a 56-year-old male from Clarksville, is being treated at Tennova.
