10 Ferry Riders Injured At San Francisco Pier During Back Out

The Coast Guard says 10 ferry riders sustained minor injuries when the ferry they were on struck a piling Sunday night at San Francisco Pier 41.

The Peralta ferry, operated by the Blue and Gold Fleet, ran into the piling as it backed out of the terminal at Pier 41 at 5:45 p.m. PST, reports ABC News.

The agency says that those injured in the incident were transported to a local hospital for treatment of mainly cuts and bruises. The passenger’s injuries were described as minor to moderate, with most being treated for neck and back pain.

The agency says there was no structural damage to the vessel and only minor damage occurred to the piling.

The Coast Guard said the vessel was temporarily taken out of service as officials began their investigation of the event. The cause of the crash is under investigation.

The Coast Guard office early Monday didn’t have further details about the injured or how the collision ended up happening. Ferry company spokesmen weren’t immediate available for comment.

Media reports say the boat was heading to Alameda before the collision occurred.

Darryl Pham was a passenger onboard the ferry when the accident took place. “I kind of saw it coming. A lot of people didn’t, and it just hit the pylon and I saw kids flying, and it was pretty bad,” Pham told ABC station KGO-TV in San Francisco.

Richard Rick’s wife and nephew were among those that were taken to the hospital for treatment. Ricks said his nephew received a gash above his eye during the crash.

“The people have come forth and they’ve rendered apologies, and they’re doing everything they can to comfort us, so we’re appreciative of that,” Ricks told KGO.
