A Lake Champlain, Vermont ferry crashed into a dock and caused personal injuries to some of the passengers. Apparently, there were mechanical problems with the ferry that caused the engines to shut down. The Vermont State Police reported that some of the injuries were minor. Rescue squads were called the scene to assist with the situation.
It is important for ferry operators to make sure that the equipment and engines have regular, routine maintenance and inspection. Of course, some mechanical failures will result even with regular, routine maintenance. You can read more about this story at Vermont Ferry Crashes into Dock – Some Passengers Injured.
