ATLANTA -- The driver of a jet ski that hit two children on Lake Lanier Friday has been identified as 38-year-old Jeffrey S. Hubbard of Atlanta.

Investigators said Hubbard ran into the victims as they were being towed on an inner tube by a pontoon boat near the mouth of Big Creek.

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources said an unidentified 15-year-old girl was also seriously injured in the crash.

Both were life-flighted to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. 

DNR Sgt. Mike Burgamy said Hubbard's jet ski collided with the tube.

The accident happened on the south end of the lake near Van Pugh Park.

Burgamy says it is too early to tell if any charges will be filed, and that alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
