Seattle Water Taxi Collides With Pier

A water taxi carrying 77 passengers collided with a Seattle pier on Sunday. One passenger was thrown into the water, and five reportedly required emergency medical attention at local hospitals. The water taxi involved in the collision, the RACHEL MARIE, makes 20 runs a day between West Seattle and Seattle Pier 50. Initial reports indicate that the accident was the result of mechanical failure as the vessel was docking. Passengers aboard the vessel indicate the vessel failed to back down as it was approaching the pier, and the crew warned the passengers to brace for the impending collision. King County operates the taxi service, and the vessel is reportedly leased to King County by Four Seasons Marine Services.
