We are pleased to see the Coast Guard take responsibility for their horrific 2009 crash in San Diego…
Coast Guardsmen didn’t follow proper procedures and were driving at speeds that were “excessive for safe operation” when their vessel overran a Sea Ray at the 2009 San Diego Parade of Lights, killing an 8-year-old boy and injuring 10.
The Coast Guard released comprehensive results of its investigation into the high-profile accident, saying that “a poor command climate at the Coast Guard Station San Diego” was one of the additional contributors to the crash. The memo also says the Coast Guard boat operator not only failed to drive his boat safely, but the crew also failed to perform its duties and failed to follow standard risk management.
