A kayaker was struck and killed by a power boat Monday in Marina del Rey, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Deryl Walker said.

The crash occurred about 1:10 p.m. near the marina’s south jetty, when an “approximately 50-foot power vessel” hit the kayaker, Walker said.

A woman’s body was recovered but had yet to be identified, he said.

There was “no evidence of a crime,” but the death remained under investigation, Walker said.
