Venice, September 18 - Another boat crash in Venice
has occurred in the Grand Canal beneath the Rialto Bridge, a
month after a German tourist was killed during a gondola ride,
police said Wednesday.
The latest accident took place Tuesday when a water bus
collided with a taxi, causing damage to both vessels without
injury.
German Joachim Vogel, 50, who was riding with his family in
a gondola, died of extensive head wounds last month when the
gondola collided with a taxi.
The force of the impact threw the entire family into the
canal.
Police say the gondolier at the helm tested positive for
drugs, but their investigation still includes three water-bus
pilots.
Following the crash the city was in the process of
implementing new safety measures around the historic Rialto
Bridge, a narrow and busy bottleneck in Grand Canal traffic.
