Ferry Allision in San Francisco
The U.S. Coast Guard is investigating the cause of a ferry allision that occurred at the San Francisco Ferry Building Friday afternoon.
A crew member aboard the ferry San Francisco notified Coast Guard Sector San Francisco watchstanders of the allision around 2:40 p.m.
There were reports of two minor injuries that did not require treatment beyond first aid and no reports of pollution.
Photos published by the San Francisco Chronicle showed that the vessel suffered significant hull damage.
The ferry's operator Golden Gate Ferry, a division of the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District, said it will operate on a normal schedule Monday. "We will cover regularly scheduled trips with other vessels in our fleet as the M.S. San Francisco is undergoing evaluation for repairs following the collision," the operator said.
