Three ferry passengers have been taken to the hospital after the boat they were aboard crashed into the quai on Saturday afternoon in Gothenburg, reports news agency TT.

The accident happened around 1 p.m. at the Saltholmen harbor. The impact caused several passengers to fall and made some people sick, reports Swedish Radio news.

A representative from the ferry boat company, Styrsöbolaget, explained to TT that the conductor of the Valö had been trying to avoid a collision with a passing sailboat, but overcorrected the path of the ferry, instead hitting the quai.
