One person was injured in a car accident while boarding a Kingston ferry on Monday, according to news reports.
The car accident reportedly occurred around 4:30 p.m. when vehicles were boarding the Spokane ferry set to depart at 4:40 p.m. It is unclear exactly how the collision occurred, but Washington State Ferry employees said one vehicle collided with a railing, causing at least one other vehicle to crash.
One person sustained injuries in the collision and was transported to a hospital, according to North Kitsap Fire & Rescue.
The incident caused the state ferry traffic to be delayed at least 20 minutes.
Investigators are working to determine exactly how the collision occurred.
As a Spokane car accident attorney, I’m saddened to hear about this crash. I hope the victims in this incident are able to make a full and speedy recovery. I also hope Investigators are able to determine how this accident occurred so they can possibly prevent an incident like this from occurring in the future. I urge drivers to always pay attention while boarding and departing ferries to avoid accidents like this.
