WBRZ reports that two people have been killed in a boating accident on the Amite River in Baton Rouge on Thursday evening.

One other person was sent to the hospital.

The accident happened where the water meets Carew Harris Road, which lies near the parish line.

The boat hit some kind of object in the water, causing it to submerge.

The East Baton Rouge Coroner's Office will conduct autopsies on Friday to determine cause of death.
