Authorities have identified two men killed in a Monday night boating accident.

The accident on Lake Fork killed Justin Douglas Wilcox, 34, of Oglesby, and Walter Edward Serbon Jr., 69, of Yantis, and injured a 12-year-old boy who was taken to Children’s Medical Center of Dallas. 

One of the vessels involved sank at the scene and has been successfully raised by the Game Warden statewide Dive Team and Accident Reconstruction Team with specialized flotation lift bags and has been towed to shore for further investigation.

 Maj. Game Warden David Murray with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department said Wednesday there is no information yet on the cause of the accident, which happened around sunset on the lake near Quitman. Wilcox and Serbon were driving the boats.

The investigation is continuing.
