Update: Boating accident in Lancaster County

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Police say they're getting a better idea of how the boat crash in Lancaster County happened.

Two people were killed, 46-year-old Robert Andrews Taylor, Jr. and 37-year-old Catherine Smith Williams, when the boat hit a wall at the Windmill Point on Friday.

Police say Taylor called them earlier Friday night while still on the boat, saying he hit something in the Rappahannock River.

What he hit was a marker in the water, before he crashed into the wall.
