A pregnant woman and her 3-year-old son were killed on Sunday after their pontoon boat collided with a speed boat on a lake southwest of Greensboro, N.C., WGHP reports.

Authorities recovered Melissa Chambers Britt’s body from Swearing Creek, a part of High Rock Lake. Her son, William Jaiden Britt, died at a hospital, the station reports.

The boy’s father was driving the pontoon boat at the time of the crash. He was not injured, but the family dog, also on the boat, is missing.

Officials said the speed boat was driving well over 25 mph in a shallow part of the lake, WGHP reports. No one on the speed boat was injured.

The driver will have to wait until next week to hear from the Davidson County district attorney about possible criminal charges, WGHP reports.
