Jasper authorities say that one person has been killed in a boat crash that occurred late Tuesday night just south of the Twin Dikes boat ramp.
Department spokesman Tom Harvey says the boat carried a man, a woman, and two children. Rescuers helped get the damaged vessel to shore, but details of how the accident occurred are still unclear.
Harvey says the man died in the accident. The woman was transported to a Beaumont hospital and was undergoing surgery following the incident. The two children were also hospitalized for treatment of unspecified injuries.
