CONROE, Texas (AP) - Authorities say a 58-year-old man has died after two boats collided during a Lake Conroe bass fishing tournament in Montgomery County.

According to Capt. Rusty Fincher with the Montgomery County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office, Michael Wayne Conaway died shortly after authorities arrived on the scene north of the FM 1097 bridge on Saturday. The driver of the other boat was not injured.

Fincher says the collision happened around 7:50 a.m., and that the boats appeared to travel as fast as 45 mph when they collided. According to Fincher, the drivers of the two boats did not think that the other would yield before the crash occurred.

The collision remains under investigation.
