NTSB Meeting This Week on Manhattan Ferry Accident

The Seastreak Wall Street passenger ferry struck a pier Jan. 9, 2013, while approaching the dock.

The National Transportation Safety Board will meet April 8 to discuss the accident involving the Seastreak Wall Street commuter ferry in lower Manhattan on Jan. 9, 2013. The high-speed passenger ferry was completing a routine trip from New Jersey to Pier 11/Wall Street when it struck the pier.

More than 80 of the 331 people aboard it were treated for injuries, and four people suffered serious injuries. Seastreak, the owner of the ferry, has paid more than $1 million in personal injury claims from the accident, according to an April 5, 2014, Associated Press report.

The meeting will start at 9:30 a.m. EDT in the NTSB Board Room and Conference Center in Washington, D.C. A link to a webcast of it will be available shortly before the start of the meeting at www.capitolconnection.net/capcon/ntsb/ntsb.htm.
