2 hurt when ferry, pleasure boat collide in San Francisco Bay

SAN FRANCISCO — The U.S. Coast Guard says a Golden Gate Ferry has crashed with a 22-foot-long pleasure boat in San Francisco Bay, leaving two people injured.

The Coast Guard said in a statement that two of the four people from the pleasure craft were taken by boat and ambulance to a hospital after the crash at about 4:30 p.m. Saturday. There was no immediate word on the condition of the injured or the cause of the crash.

The ferry was headed from Sausalito to San Francisco with about 500 people aboard when the collision occurred in the Raccoon Straits near Tiburon, and continued its trip to Pier 1 of the Embarcadero after the crash. No one on the ferry was hurt.
