Local authorities say that the collision occurred along the Angelina River in Jasper County, near the Louisiana line.
In one boat, a man and women were killed and in the other boat a man was injured. There were also three children in the second boat, but all three avoided injury.
Families must first be notified before authorities will release the names of the deceased. As of now, alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the collision.
The investigation continues as authorities attempt to determine if speed was a factor.
