August 24, 1986|United Press International

SKAGWAY, Alaska — The 340-foot cruise ship Sea Goddess 1 plowed into the dock at the gold rush town of Skagway with 116 passengers aboard, crunching timbers that splintered and landed on its deck, officials said Saturday. No injuries were reported.

The ship reportedly dropped anchor 100 feet from the dock but could not stop, tearing off a 130-foot section of the quarter-mile-long dock, officials said.

The cause of the Friday accident was being investigated.
