Two dead after boat crash at Tom Steed Lake

TOM STEED LAKE, Okla._Oklahoma Highway Patrol is investigating the deaths of two people following a boat crash at Tom Steed Lake.

OHP says 81-year-old Kenneth Austin of Altus and 77-year-old Jerry Austin of El Paso, Texas, died at Tom Steed Lake after their boat hit a large underwater boulder Sunday. OHP says the men fell inside the boat, causing it to capsize. Their bodies were recovered about 30 feet from their boat.

OHP was notified by the family late Sunday that the two hadn't returned from a boating trip at Tom Steed Lake, which is about eight miles north of Snyder.

Both men were pronounced dead by a medical examiner at the scene. The boat was found capsized in about 5 to 6 feet of water near the main boat ramp.
