Two people are dead after a Saturday afternoon boating accident in Jasper County.

According to game wardens, Aaron Chase, 52, and Charlotte Bowden, 39, both of Fred, were killed in a near head-on collision on the Angelina River. Children were also riding in the boat, but authorities say they were not injured.

Officials tell KETK there were other injuries, but the severity has not been released.

Alcohol is also being investigated as a factor in the accident but it is too soon to speculate.
