Staten Island Ferry Crash Injures Fifteen

By

Early yesterday evening the ferry, carrying around 750 commuters, slammed into the dock at St. George after suddenly losing power. "A crew member came on the PA system about 25 seconds before impact and said, 'Passengers, hold on! Passengers, hold on!'" said one passenger aboard the boat. About fifteen people were injured, and the ferry has now resumed service. [NYP]
