More Than 50 Reported Injured as Boat Hits NYC Dock

By  | 

NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities say about 57 people were injured in a New York City ferry crash.

There were about 330 passengers and crew members on 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 given after the crash.
