WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — A District of Columbia police boat struck at least two vessels on the Potomac River near Georgetown, causing one smaller boat to partially sink.
Witnesses told WNEW’s Mark Segraves that a harbor patrol boat was making a U-turn Saturday evening about 7 p.m. when it struck at least two other boats docked at the Georgetown waterfront. No one was hurt in the crash.
One boat was flipped on its side and was left partially underwater along the waterfront overnight.
It’s unknown if the police boat was responding to a call at the time of the crash.
The U.S. Coast Guard and D.C. police responded to the scene and have launched an investigation. The investigation continues to determine what caused the crash.
