Full Seastreak Ferry Service To Resume Monday
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Seastreak ferry service was set to resume regular service Monday, five days after one of its boats crashed into a Lower Manhattan Pier – leaving some 74 people injured.
Seastreak said on its Web site that it will resume regularly scheduled service on Monday.
The boat was loaded with 326 commuters and five crew members. Seventy-four people were injured, including two who were left in critical condition.
On Wednesday evening, investigators said mechanical failure caused the crash. Crew members told NYPD investigators the navigation controls locked or froze into place as the ferry was headed into dock.
The ferry had maintenance issues and recently received a major overhaul and the National Transportation Safety Board will look into whether that was a factor in the crash.
