Ferry Wenatchee Hits Dock at Bainbridge island

WINSLOW, Wash. — The state ferry Wenatchee crashed into the dock at Bainbridge Island, shaking up passengers but causing no obvious damage to the vessel or dock.

KOMO reports ( http://bit.ly/2dyoC0d ) that Washington State Ferries issued a statement saying the ferry was on the 12:20 p.m. sailing from Seattle to Bainbridge when it experienced a propulsion problem.

Ferries spokesman Ian Sterling said the ferry was going about 2 knots – or roughly 3 mph – when it hit the dock. No one was injured.

The vessel is currently being held at the Bainbridge Island dock for inspection. As a result, the 1:10 p.m. sailing from Bainbridge Island, and the 2:05 p.m. sailing from Seattle were cancelled.
