DETROIT (AP) - Authorities say a young man has died after the boat he was riding in collided with a barge in the Detroit River and he went overboard.

Police say the collision happened late Tuesday and three people were on the boat, including the man. The Detroit News reports his body was found early Wednesday.

Officer Dan Donakowski says the boaters tried to avoid the barge, but ended up hitting it. He says the man’s body was found near the Ambassador Bridge.

WWJ-AM reports the man was 18 or 19 years old, but his name wasn’t immediately released. The cause of the collision is under investigation.
