CONROE, TX – One person was killed and at least one more person was hospitalized after a party boat capsized on Lake Conroe last night, according to KHOU.

The accident happened near Regency Point at about 8 p.m., when the boat, which contained about 53 people including crew members, capsized.
Two people were taken to the hospital afterward.

One of those victims, 80-year-old Montgomery man Karl Kazenberg, died at the hospital.

The second victim was reportedly in stable condition.

Multiple people also had to be decontaminated due to diesel fuel being spilled in the water.

Residents living near the scene worked to help pull the victims from the water before emergency crews arrived.

Authorities believe a thunderstorm in the area contributed to the boating accident, though their investigation continues at this time.
