Sadly Wolfgang Goldammer died from his injuries not long after in a local hospital. The driver of the vehicle has been arrested by police for homicide, negligent driving and operating a vehicle without a driver’s license. Authorities have launched an investigation into the tragic event.

The large vessel arrived at the popular destination in the morning and was scheduled to depart at 5:00 PM. The ship is coming to the end of a 21-day voyage which will end in its homeport of Port Everglades on January 29.
