Mukilteo Ferries: Ship Containing Cars, Passengers, Crashes

Okay, we admit that we essentially chose this story as a chance to make a totally obscure reference in the headline, but what is Jalopnik but a wanton vanity project that we're attempting to bring y'all along on? That aside, a ferry with a capacity of 124 cars and 1,200 passengers smacked into a piling at a higher-than-average rate of speed on its way into Mulkiteo, Washington from Whidbey Island. Near as we can tell, one passenger was mildly injured due to a fall down the stairs induced by the impact. The Cathlamet apparently suffered a puncture above the waterline. The Trail of Dead guys are bummed.
