CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Two off-duty FBI employees were killed Thursday night after their pleasure boat hit a barge on the Ohio River.

First responders located the boat in the river near the Serpentine Wall and found two men dead on board. Cincinnati Police says the pleasure boat collided with a commercial tow boat around 11 p.m.

The Cincinnati division of the FBI released a statement early Friday:

"It is with great sadness that we advise that two FBI employees were involved in a tragic accident late last night that claimed their lives. At this time, family members are still being notified."

The KY division of Fish and Wildlife resources, which also oversees boating in the commonwealth, is investigating the accident along with the U.S. Coast Guard.
