Dozens Injured When Ferry Strikes New York City Dock

NEW YORK (January 9, 2013)—Nearly 60 people were injured Wednesday morning in a ferry crash in New York City.

There were about 330 passengers and crew members aboard the vessel when it arrived from New Jersey on Wednesday morning.

Officials say two people were critically hurt.

Most of the injuries were minor.

The marine industry magazine MarineLog reported in August that the ferry's water-jet propulsion system had been replaced with a new system of propellers and rudders to save fuel costs.

Police say the crew passed alcohol breath tests administered after the crash.
