Wood County, Texas (KETK) — Two people are dead and one child is injured after a Monday night boating accident in Wood County.
The wreck happened around 8:40 p.m., when two boats collided on Lake Fork. The boats were moving fast on a plane just north of the FM 515 bridge.
Both boat drivers were killed and a 12-year-old child was critically injured and flown to Dallas for care.
Names of the victims will not be released due to general policy by the game warden.
At this time, officials are recovering one of the boats from the bottom of the lake to check for evidence. The other boat has already been removed from the water.
