Ferry crashes into San Francisco's Ferry Building
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Authorities say a ferry boat carrying 53 passengers crashed into a dock at San Francisco's famed Ferry Building, causing injuries to two people onboard.
A spokeswoman for Golden Gate Ferry told the Marin Independent Journal the ferry coming from Larkspur sustained damage following Friday afternoon's crash. Priya Clemens says the cause of the accident is under investigation and employees onboard are being questioned.
A witness told The Associated Press the ferry had bumped into one dock before careening toward another dock.
