Ferry Captain, Pilot, Drug Tests Negative

HYANNIS (CBS) — Drug tests show that neither the captain nor the pilot on the high speed ferry had drugs in their system when they crashed into a jetty last Friday.

That crash on the rainy Friday evening last week injured 15 people.

In response, the Steamship Authority put both of the men on administrative leave after the accident.

Members of the crew claimed that weather was a contributing factor in the crash. ferry damage 3 Ferry Captain, Pilot, Drug Tests Negative
