Passengers wait for hours after ferry loses power in Washington's Puget Sound. Janet Kim reports.

(KING) The Washington state ferry Tacoma lost power while on a run and got stuck in the middle of Puget Sound Tuesday afternoon, stranding hundreds on board. The inconvenience didn't end there.

The Tacoma was traveling from Seattle to Bainbridge Island with 405 passengers and 138 cars on board when it lost propulsion just before 1 p.m.
