(BLOOMINGTON, IN) - Investigators spent Tuesday reconstructing a boating accident that claimed two lives on Monroe Reservoir.

State conservation officers say 51 year-old Susan Collier of Bedford, and her grandson, eight year-old Gage Pruett of Williams, died after a boat towing a Wakeboarder collided with their fishing boat.

DNR officials believe the crash happened because of inattentiveness on the part of the pilots.

A complete report of the incident will be submitted to the Monroe County Prosecutor for review.
