Of all the problems the Washington State Ferries must deal with, this is one of the strangest. In the last few yrs 42 cars and bikes have been left aboard our ferries-what happened to their drivers? ‘They can literally set off an air search. The Coast Guard will launch their assets. We’ll go out and look for this person,’ said Ian Sterling of Washington State Ferries. Last Saturday a van was left aboard the Hyak. The State Patrol and the Coast Guard were both called out. ‘The total cost on average would be around $10,000 for this type of response.’ said Cmdr. Brain Meier of the U.S. Coast Guard. The driver was found safe. He forgot he had driven on and just walked off.
