Boston police identified the woman killed in a Boston Harbor boat crash Saturday as 27-year-old Somerville resident Jeanica Julce.

The boat was carrying eight people when it struck a “day marker” navigation device in the harbor at around 3 a.m., the U.S. Coast Guard tweeted.

Five of the seven rescued boaters were taken to hospitals for treatment following the crash, the Boston Fire Department stated. The extent of their injuries was not immediately reported.

The boat was recovered. Several agencies were involved in the search, The Boston Globe reported.

Boston police said they are investigating the crash.
