(KNSD/NBC) Seven people were injured Thursday when a harbor cruise boat hit a pier while docking in San Diego.
The incident happened aboard a 150-foot yacht in the Embarcadero area.
The bow of the vessel was badly damaged. A mechanical malfunction is blamed for the crash.
After the accident, the 140 passengers had to stay on board until a tugboat pulled the boat away from the pier to position it so people could disembark
The 22-year-old three-deck ship offers bay dinner cruises, sightseeing tours and ocean whale-watching outings.
