Ferry collides with Somerset dock
Police are investigating after a ferry collided with the dock at Cavello Bay yesterday morning.
Two people on-board
Resolute were injured as a result of the accident, which occurred around 8.30am.
A police spokesman said: “Two people on-board, a male crew member and a female passenger, apparently received minor injuries as a result.
“There were no other injuries reported. The
Resolute was also damaged.
“A full investigation into this incident is underway and any witnesses, particularly the female passenger on-board at the time apparently injured by the collision, should contact the Bermuda Police Service Marine Unit on 247-1509 or 247-1770 at the earliest opportunity.”
Bermuda Industrial Union president Chris Furbert said he was aware of the incident while speaking at a press conference on another matter.
Said Mr Furbert: “My understanding was that the pilot was over on one side of the ship — there are controls on both sides and the controls on one side were not operating. The ship did hit Cavello Bay dock.”
