YIKES! Huge Wave Sends One Car Into Another On Ferry

Strong winds kicked up huge waves in Puget Sound, sending one car into another on a Washington state ferry from Friday Harbor to Anacortes, Nov. 19, 2017.

Waves kicked up by strong winds Sunday caused some cars on a Washington state ferry to collide with each other.

Video shot by ferry passenger Jeremy Ridgway showed what happened when a huge wave hit the car deck near the front of the 11:05 a.m. ferry traveling from Friday Harbor to Anacortes.

The wave pushed a car 10 feet back, causing it to crash into another.

You can hear a woman in the car with Ridgway concerned about staying inside, but Ridgeway pointed out that it might be dangerous to get out because another wave could send the cars moving again.

There were no immediate reports of injuries. Ridgway says his car was a little dented.

According to the University of Washington High Resolution model, the peak gust in Friday Harbor at around the time of that sailing was 46 mph.
