JASPER COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

According to Texas Game Warden Captain Tom Jenkins, two adults were killed after two boats collided on the Angelina River around 3 PM Saturday.

The accident happened on the Angelina River behind the dam south of the Highway 63 bridge.

Jenkins says one male and one female died after the bass boat they were in collided in a sharp, blind curve with a bay boat. There were five occupants in the bay boat including three children.

The driver of the bay boat was seriously injured and is in a Jasper hospital, according to Jenkins.

None of the children were injured and they were all wearing life jackets.

Jenkins says the identities of the persons killed or injured are not being released at this time. He says this accident is still under investigation.

Jenkins says the Texas Game Wardens are also investigating another accident on Sam Rayburn Lake where a jet ski and a boat collided around 2 PM on Saturday.

He says the jet ski hit the boat and knocked one person out of the boat. The person knocked out of the boat was injured.

Jenkins says this is the first Memorial Day weekend in about three years that there has been good weather and there are a lot of people out on the water.

He wants to remind people to drive defensively, wear life jackets and let someone know where you're going.
