MIAMI (AP) -- A state wildlife official says an airboat flipped over in the Everglades, killing its 26-year-old driver.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino says Ryan Anthony Carraway of Fort Myers was pronounced dead at a Miami hospital.

It wasn't immediately clear how Carraway lost control of the single-passenger airboat in the Francis S. Taylor Wildlife Management Area of the Everglades.

Pino said his agency was not sure how fast the driver was going.
