A man and woman were killed early Sunday morning when their boat crashed into a dock in the Meeks Bay area of Lake Tahoe.

According to the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office, a group of people sleeping on the dock were jolted awake when the 19-foot Glastron powerboat hit the dock with such force that the boat was split in half.

Investigators say 44-year-old Tatiana Nikolskaya and her husband, 45-year-old Vadim Raizanov, were died as a result of the crash.

It’s not yet known if drugs or alcohol had anything to do with the crash, the Sheriff’s Office said.

No one else was reported hurt.
