CULLMAN, Ala. (AP) — Authorities are investigating how a jet ski crashed into a dock on a north Alabama lake, killing a woman on the watercraft.

Alabama marine police say the wreck happened around 12:30 a.m. Sunday in the Sulphur Springs Slough portion of Smith Lake in Cullman County.

Authorities say the 24-year-old woman died at the scene. The Cullman County coroner later identified her as Albina Sharifullina.

WBRC-TV reports (http://bit.ly/VyIeGk) that a 40-year-old man was also injured. He was flown to Huntsville Hospital with critical injuries. Marine police say he is expected to survive his injuries.

Police, who declined to say who was driving the jet ski, say the cause of the crash remained under investigation.
