According to KOMO News, the accident happened as the M/V Elwha was loading and unloading cars at the Orcas Island ferry dock around 5:30 p.m. Witness Bob Connor told KOMO News the ferry worker somehow became pinned between a truck and an SUV.

The ferry worker was flown by helicopter to Harborview Medical Center, according to ferries spokesperson Susan Harris. His condition was unknown. Also unknown is just how the employee became pinned between vehicles.
