Entering port on Lake Conroe last night, two boats collided, killing one passenger and injuring at least two others.

The man sitting at the steering wheel was directly hit and sustained critical injuries, later dying at the scene.
His wife and daughter were injured at taken to Conroe Regional Trauma Center.
In the aftermath of the crash, the men in the fishing boat were ejected, but neither was seriously injured.
Game wardens administered sobriety tests, but authorities said “they did not appear impaired.”
Authorities said both boats were illuminated with marker lights at the time of the crash, but an investigation is under way.
