CLEARWATER (FOX 13) -

A day on the water turned deadly for two out of state people Saturday night.

A man and a woman were riding a personal watercraft and crashed into a tour boat in the intercoastal waterway on Clearwater Beach.

It happened around 6 p.m. near the Memorial Causeway Bridge.

Jose Santiago was on the Tropics Tour boat.

He said one jet ski scooted around the front of the boat and made it.

Santiago said a second tried, but didn't.

"Its like, what's this guy doing?" said Santiago. "He was coming straight into the boat, and when he realized he was coming close to the boat, it was too late."

Florida Fish and Wildlife and the U.S. Coast Guard are investigating.

The victims are identified as Ramana Godabiraju and Shubhada Kulkami, both of Pennsylvania.
