Woman dies after standing in boat going under bridge near Savannah

Officials have returned to the Kings Ferry boat ramp to investigate the death of a young Savannah woman.

Reports say just before 5:30 pm  Sunday emergency workers were notified that a boat had gone under a train trestle over the Ogeechee River.

A passenger in the boat reportedly boat stood up as the boat passed under the trestle, and the passenger's head struck the lower beam of the bridge. Shana Crozier, 25, of Savannah was killed in the incident.

 Crozier had been to the area before – in one photo on Facebook she is shown in camo pants at the boat landing with the bridge in the background. 

Crozier appeared to love the outdoors. In Facebook photos she is seen fishing, hunting and skeet shooting.

 On Monday, her friends mourned her loss on social media. 

“I'm at a complete loss!! RIP Shana Crozier!!! You will be truly missed by everyone!” wrote Cody Morris.

 “I wish i had the words to express the pain and sorrow i feel for the Crozier family. You were a shining star to anyone who met you. Strong, intelligent, beautiful, and completely full of life!!! Nothing short of amazing! I feel extremely blessed to have known you. May you Rest in peace darlin………..”

“It didn't take much for anyone to recognize that awesome smile & charismatic personality. Rather than let tears overwhelm us today, let's instead smile & remember the good times with her. That's exactly the way she would've wanted it,” Floyd wrote. 

King's Ferry Boat Ramp was closed on Monday morning as the investigation continued.
