KINGSLAND — Game wardens are searching for clues and asking for the public’s help in a case involving an alleged hit-and-run collision on Lake LBJ.

The incident happened just after midnight March 22 in Kingsland on the waterway adjacent to Legends Golf Course, according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

Following a call to dispatch, authorities found a couple and a damaged 16- to 17-foot ski boat.

“Two occupants in one boat said they were struck by another boat, causing the boat to crash into a concrete barrier wall,” TPWD spokesman Steve Lightfoot said. “(The female occupant) was taken to the hospital with minor injuries and later released.”

The condition of the other boater was unavailable, and identification of the couple is pending.

Investigators have not released a description of the boat, pending additional inquiry of the boat occupants.

“We’re still investigating. Our game wardens are looking for information from the public,” Lightfoot said. “If they know anything, saw anything, contact the game warden.”

To offer tips, call (512) 389-4848.

    Not A Report
    Actualy it in more of a request that the noise ordinance that I saw posted at Kingsland Park definitely be implemented lake wide! These loud bouts with their noises and sterio systems is getting out of control. My teeth rattle and they’re not even a block away… kinda exaggerating, but you know what I mean.
