   AZLE (AP) – A Georgia man has been identified as the kayaker who died after a Fourth of July night collision with a motor boat on a North Texas lake.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office says 53-year-old Craig Landoli of Roswell, Ga., died in Monday night’s accident. Landoli’s body was recovered Tuesday afternoon from Eagle Mountain Lake.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department says a man in another kayak suffered a broken leg in the accident in which three kayaks were struck while floating near a dock. Lieutenant Jennifer Kemp says two of the kayaks did not have required lighting.

The driver of the motor boat stopped to help after the accident.
