Deadly boat collision on Lake Conroe
Officials say two people leaving a fishing tournament came around a bend in the water and slammed into a pleasure boat with eight people aboard. The collision killed one person, injured eight and one person still hasn’t been found.
A few kids were among those airlifted to Memorial Hermann.
This time of year, officials say boating accidents pick up. They urge extra precaution.
“If you’re operating a vessel on Lake Conroe after sunset, you have to have lights on or you cannot be seen,” says Lt. Tim Cade with the Montgomery County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office.
No lights may have been an issue in this crash. That’s still under investigation.
It is a tragic way to start the season.
