2 Killed After Ski Boat Collides With Bass Boat in Texas

Two people were killed and several others were injured after two boats collided near Houston, authorities say.

The Chambers County Sheriff's Office said the collision happened Sunday night near the town of Cove, about 35 miles east of Houston.

The sheriff's office said a ski boat apparently struck a bass boat, and two people were confirmed dead at the scene.

Sheriff Brian Hawthorne said two people were in critical condition, and five others had injuries that weren't life-threatening.

The sheriff said one person is in custody, but authorities have not yet released that person's name or what charges he or she may face.
