Three people were killed and five others were injured Saturday night following a boat crash on the Buck Bay area of Bobs Lake, north of Kingston, Ont., the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) said.

It happened between Westport and Parham just after 9:30 p.m.

Police say the three people were pronounced dead at the scene. They identify them as:

• 21-year-old female from South Frontenac Township

• 22-year-old female from Elginburg

• 23-year-old male from South Frontenac

The five others who were injured range in age from 21 to 44. They were taken to a Kingston Hospital “with a range of injuries. One was transported by Ornge Air due to the severity of their injuries. Others involved were checked out at the scene by paramedics,” the OPP said.

Frontenac Paramedic Services confirmed to CTV News Ottawa it’s a two-vessel boat collision. 

The OPP said in an update on Sunday “one boat was described as an open bow fishing style boat and the other as a speed boat.”

The cause of the collision is under investigation.
