Man dies of injuries from San Francisco Bay ferry crash

SAN FRANCISCO — The U.S. Coast Guard says an Oregon man injured in a high-speed crash on the San Francisco Bay between a ferry and a motorboat has died.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/XJh3ls ) that 68-year-old Harry Holzhauer of Tigard, Ore. was aboard the pleasure craft when it collided Saturday with the MS San Francisco, which was headed from Sausalito to San Francisco with about 500 passengers.

A second victim who was transported to a local hospital continues to suffer from serious injuries.

Coast Guard investigators are trying to determine who was at fault.

Golden Gate Transit spokeswoman Mary Currie says the ferry briefly was taken out of service to be investigated, then put back in service Sunday.
