Investigation Underway After Ship Crashes Into San Diego Pier
An investigation was underway Friday into what caused a cruise ship to crash into the seawall near its dock along the downtown San Diego water front, injuring three passengers.
The Adventure Hornblower struck the seawall off North Harbor Drive near West Broadway shortly before 1 p.m. Thursday, according to the Port of San Diego.
Five crew members and 139 passengers were aboard the 150-foot vessel at the time.
Three passengers were taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries of unknown severity, authorities said. An update on their condition was not immediately available.
A video of the incident was posted online:
The Coast Guard responded and determined nothing hazardous had spilled into the water and Harbor police and engineers secured the seawall.
Port officials said crews would work diligently to repair the seawall and barrier railings as soon as possible.
