New York – At least 50 people were injured Wednesday morning after a ferry crashed into a dock in Lower Manhattan, New York, authorities said.

One person is in critical condition and being treated at a nearby hospital, said police spokeswoman Sophia Tassie.

Emergency crews carted several passengers on stretchers toward ambulances. There was a gash on the front of the ship, and support boats circled the area.

“There was a large jolt,” passenger Elizabeth Banta said. “It felt like we were in a car crash. … Several people were thrown into the air and onto the ground.”
