KEYSTONE LAKE, Okla. -- The Oklahoma Highway Patrol confirms two people died in a boating accident at Keystone Lake on Sunday night.

Troopers report that a 1999 VIP boat crashed into a 2008 Sea-Doo around 9 p.m. near Pier 51. They said the Jetski didn't have working lights and believe the boat couldn't see it in the dark and crashed into it.

The two people on the Jetski were confirmed dead at the scene by the medical examiner. Officials identified the deceased as 48-year-old Cathy Crocker and 56-year-old William Crocker from Sand Springs.

The boat was carrying three people at the time of the accident. They weren't injured.

The medical examiner will be investigating the cause of death.
