FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — An investigation is underway after a boat struck a pier in Fall River Friday night.

Crews responded to the pier of the former Shell Oil tank farm at the end of New Street around 9:45 p.m., according to Fall River Deputy Police Chief Barden Castro.

Two people on the boat, a 43-year-old Mansfield man and a 44-year-old North Easton man, were transported to Rhode Island Hospital with unspecified injuries.

Initially, one of the men told police a third man was on the boat, prompting a water search to find the missing man, Castro said.

The man later admitted he lied, Castro said, and that there were only two people on the boat.

Castro said the Massachusetts Environmental Police will be handling the investigation.

It’s unclear what caused the boat to crash.
