Ferry, sailboat collide in San Juan Islands; all OK
Washington State Ferries spokeswoman Marta Coursey says the 382-foot ferry Hyak was en route from San Juan Island to Orcas Island when it collided with the 27-foot sailboat.
The Coast Guard said the sailboat had a single occupant, who was brought onboard the ferry after the accident. A 25-foot Coast Guard rescue vessel responded from Bellingham.
The cause was under investigation. Coursey said the ferry's captain and crew would be subject to drug testing.
The accident forced the cancellation of the 2:20 p.m. sailing from Orcas to Anacortes.
