NTSB Investigating New York City Ferry Crash

The ferry was transporting commuters from New Jersey to Manhattan during rush hour.

Following another commuter ferry crash in Manhattan on Jan. 9, the National Transportation Safety Board has sent a team to New York City to investigate what caused it.

A total of 57 people were injured, including nine seriously hurt and two in critical condition, when the Seastreak Wall Street struck Pier 11 in lower Manhattan, the city's financial district, during rush hour. Bringing passengers from New Jersey into the city, the boat had 326 people aboard, including five crew members.

NTSB's investigation will look into the crew's safety compliance and training and also evaluate drug and alcohol tests that were conducted after the crash.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with those that were injured," Seastreak LLC management said in a statement promising to "work closely with the federal, state and local authorities to determine the cause of the accident."
