SAN DIEGO (AP) — A San Diego harbor cruise boat hit a pier while docking, injuring seven people and causing significant damage to the bow of the vessel.
San Diego Fire-Rescue Department Capt. Joe Amador says three of those hurt about 1 p.m. Thursday were taken to hospitals.
The accident occurred at San Diego’s Embarcadero tourism area.
Amador says there was apparently a mechanical malfunction that prevented the 150-foot-long Adventure Hornblower from stopping in time as it was docking.
It’s not immediately known how many people were aboard the vessel.
A tugboat is working on pulling the vessel away from the pier.
