STEAMSHIP AUTHORITY HIGH-SPEED FERRY CRASHES INTO JETTY

On Friday, June 16, 2017 at approximately 9:45 p.m., the Woods Hole, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Steamship Authority's high-speed ferry, Iyanough, crashed into a jetty at the Hyannis Harbor entrance.  The ferry was reported by the Steamship Authority to be travelling at approximately 32 knots, or 38 miles per hour (the maximum allowable speed in that area) when it struck the jetty. The 48 passengers on board had no warning prior to the vessel striking the jetty.  One man who was on an outside stairway fell and suffered a head injury.  Many others onboard struck tables, walls and other objects upon the violent impact.  About 15 passengers were taken off the vessel and transported by ambulance to Cape Cod Hospital where they were treated for a variety of injuries.  Goldberg & Weigand LLP has interviewed several of the passengers and we will be presenting claims against the Steamship Authority for some of the injured passengers.  For more information call Peter M. Goldberg at (508)775-9099 or email pgoldberg@capeinjurylaw.com
