Divers off Seattle inspect grounded ferry after it loses power, runs aground

Divers west of Seattle on Sunday began inspecting the hull of a ferry that lost power and ran aground near Bainbridge Island. Nobody was hurt when the Walla Walla ran aground in Rich Passage around 4:30 p.m. Saturday on its way from Bremerton to Seattle. A generator failure apparently played a role in the incident, affecting 596 passengers, 15 crew and 175 vehicles, according to Washington State Ferries, a division of the state Department of Transportation.
