Seniors from Weehawken High School were celebrating their prom on a docked yacht Thursday night when it collided with another boat around 8 p.m.
There were 95 passengers and 11 faculty members on board the Cornucopia Destiny when it somehow rear-ended the Cornucopia Sundancer, smashing it into the pier.
No one on board the boat was injured.
Officers with the Hoboken Police Department responded to the scene and helped coordinate buses for the students.
The superintendent said every effort will be made to hold another prom before graduation.
Weehawken High School students disembarked the Destiny at 9:50pm. The students are en route to the Weehawken Elks via @WeehawkenTSD school bus. Students may continue the evening at the Elks until midnight. Every effort will be made to hold another prom before graduation.— Robert R. Zywicki (@ZywickiR) May 25, 2018
