SMARTSVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a 53-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter in connection with a boating collision on a Northern California lake that killed two people and injured two others.

Yuba County Sheriff's Lt. Damon Gil says Jeffrey Sandow of Auburn was arrested Sunday morning at the Yuba County Sheriff's Department. Gil says investigators believe Sandow was under the influence of alcohol while driving one of the two power boats in the collision on Englebright Lake.

Gil tells the Sacramento Bee (http://bit.ly/NvX8GW) authorities have yet to identify the two people who died, pending notification of their families. The collision reported Saturday night also left two other people with minor to moderate injuries.

Englebright Lake is a man-made reservoir formed along the Yuba River and is also a popular camping area.
