the two boats were going for a ride when the accident occurred.
Officials said they would not comment on the specifics of how the collision occurred, except to say one boat hit the side of the other boat.
Officials said they would not release the names ol the woman or family members until all of the next of kin were notified.
The accident occurred at about 11:45 p.m. Friday across from Hot Shots Frazar Lakeview Camp about one mile north of the Lake McQueeney dam in 5-foot-deep water. Parker said.
The area is known for having a high traffic of boats and a crowd had just finished gathering in the area for a fire
works show near the accident area,
The lake was closed through the early morning until about 1:30 p.m. Saturday to allow law enforcement officials to drag the lake for the missing body, Parker said.
Officials responding to the accident included state game wardens, Guadalupe County Sheriffs deputies, the Seguin Fire Department, the McQueeney Volunteer Fire Department and the Department of Public Safety.
Peter Flores, captain game warden for the San Antonio district, arrived Saturday afternoon to begin an investigation of the accident.
Parker said the family’s boat had
experienced “extensive” damage and had to be removed from the water.
The woman’s boat remained docked at Hot Shots and was still under review for evidence, officials said.
Flores said he would make a conclusion as to which driver was at fault based on the damage to the two boats and testimony from victims and surviving occupants.
Officials said they could not comment whether the boats’ lights were on as required by law at night time or whether charges of negligent and hazardous operations would be filed.
They also would not comment as to the speed of either of the two boats or whether the occupants were wearing lifejackets.Phones
