Service is suspended at the ferry terminal in Anacortes, Washington after the driver of a Jeep drove into the water at about 9:30 a.m. this morning. The terminal serves the San Juan Islands and, in the summer months, Sidney.

The U.S. Coast Guard is currently assisting in a search and rescue operation along with local police.
In a statement from Washington State Ferries, all vessels bound for Anacortes have returned to their departure terminals.
“We advise limiting discretionary travel for the remainder of the day due to long delays and backups expected when service resumes.”
This article has been updated to clarify the location of the incident. The incident occured in Anacortes, WA — not the Sidney International Ferry Terminal with service to Anacortes, WA.
