Texas Singer/Songwriter Josh Ward Involved in Boating Accident


Tragic news late last night, out of Lake Conroe. Josh Ward who is known for radio hits like Hard Whiskey, Promises and Sent Me You, was involved in a boating accident.

According to Montgomery Police Reporter:

At 9:07 pm Montgomery County 911 took a call from a boater who stated they had been involved in a collision on Lake Conroe north of the dam. They reported one woman was in the water and had not been seen since the crash. Another male passenger pulled several children  out of the water, all of which had severe injuries. They also reported two men from another boat were in the water.

North Montgomery County Fire Rescue Boat 94 was first on the scene followed by multiple Montgomery County Precinct 1 Lake Patrol units.

Lt Cade with the Montgomery County Precinct 1 Lake Patrol reported a 29 year-old female was thrown from their pleasure boat after it was struck by a Skeeter bass boat. That female is still missing and the dive team just called off the search for the night at 330am.  Cade said a bass boat involved in a fishing tournament had just left the East Beach area of Lake Conroe. As they rounded the corner of the point the bass boat slammed into a large pleasure boat. Both the driver and passenger of the bass boat were ejected but had life vests. The impact almost cut the pleasure boat in two.

An investigation is pending, but we should note; Ward was a passenger and alcohol is not thought to have played a factor. Our thoughts are with all involved. This afternoon Ward posted this to Facebook:
