Minor injuries sustained in Embarcadero ferryboat crash


A ferry vessel crashed into a dock at the San Francisco Ferry Building Friday afternoon, causing two passengers onboard to suffer minor injuries, according to a Golden Gate Ferry spokeswoman.

The crash occurred around 2 p.m. at the terminal along the San Francisco waterfront.

According to Golden Gate Transit District spokeswoman Priya Clemens, the San Francisco-bound ferry was traveling from Larkspur and had 53 passengers onboard.

One passenger suffered injuries to their back, but refused treatment. Another passenger was treated at the scene for a bruised hip, Clemens said.

Although the vessel and dock sustained some damage, the Ferry Building was not damaged. Additionally, the crash didn’t result in any delays.

Clemens said:

“It’s a light travel day so we’re not having any service delays or disruptions.”

The ferry vessel’s crew is being debriefed and will undergo drug and alcohol testing, which Clemens said is standard protocol during such incidents.

While Clemens said the cause of the crash appears to be mechanical, an investigation is underway and could take days.
