BOSTON (AP) - Authorities say a fast ferry traveling to Cape Cod ran aground in a foggy Boston Harbor, but none of the 149 people and one dog who were onboard was injured.
A U.S. Coast Guard spokesman says the ferry headed to Provincetown ran aground sometime after 9 a.m. Saturday near Nixes Mate, one of the smaller islands in the harbor.
Rescuers spent more than an hour and a half transferring passengers, crew members and the dog to another ferry.
Sgt. John Kelly of the marine police unit from nearby Quincy says crew told authorities that it was very foggy.
The Coast Guard will investigate.
An executive with Bay State Cruise Co. that owns the ferry did not immediately comment.
