Ruling expected on ferry crash that crushed 28 boats

A British Columbia Supreme Court justice will decide whether two North Vancouver companies can be held responsible for a ferry crash on June 30, 2005 in which the Queen of Oak Bay smashed into docks at Sewell's Marina in West Vancouver.

Nobody was injured in the crash, but 28 boats were crushed or damaged after the ferry lost power in Horseshoe Bay and hit the marina. After insurance payouts, the accident cost the ferry corporation more than $2 million.
