Cruise Ship Sinking On Thursday, March 31, 2016 Hornblower Cruises' Adventure Hornblower was involved in a collision in at the Embarcadero in San Diego, California with 139 passengers and five crew members aboard.

People walking along the Embarcadero could see the Adventure Hornblower was coming in fast and suddenly heard five blasts of the horn before the ship crashed into the dock.

Three passengers were taken to hospitals with traumatic injuries, according to a tweet from the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. Four others were treated at the scene and released.
