HOBOKEN, N.J. (1010 WINS) -- Prom night didn't go as planned for seniors at Weehawken High School.

They were celebrating on a docked yacht at Pier 14 in the Hudson on Hoboken Thursday night, when it collided with another boat.

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.

Nobody was hurt.

Rosemarie Diaz said she had just dropped a friend off at the prom when she got word of the accident.

"She said the boat just crashed into the boat in front of us, and I was freaking out, I was like, 'are you okay,' because she wasn't answering my calls after that," she said.

The superintendent said every effort will be made to hold another prom before graduation.
