The vessel was coming from New Jersey when it struck an access ramp at West 39th Street and 12th Avenue shortly after 4 p.m.
“This afternoon, as it was approaching the pier, it was going a little faster than normal. It was reversing, didn’t reverse as quickly as he thought, and hit the pier abruptly,” FDNY Manhattan Borough Commander Roger Sakowich told CBS2’s Jessica Moore. “People were getting ready to disembark, and a lot of them were thrown forward.”READ MORE: NYPD: Knife Fight Spills Into Midtown Pizzeria, 2 Taken Into Custody
