St Thomas - St Croix ferry crash July 4 2011

Another ferry accident. They seem to like the reefs around Great St James near St Thomas, USVI, although it is usually Cow & Calf... Was it last time or the time before with the Boy Scout passengers???

These folks were returning to St Croix via St Thomas (according to the radio report) from the St John Festival held over the July 4th weekend.  Wow, full tilt boogy onto the reef...

Anyway, here's the story on the St Thomas Source

I like what the ferry company's managing director said "It was one of those freaky things,”

The reef is on charts and GPS...

Definitely a bit of merde happening...

So It Goes... (but not me, please!)
