NEW YORK - Police and fire officials say 30 to 50 people were injured when a ferry from New Jersey struck a dock during rush hour in lower Manhattan.

News reports say the Seastreak Wall Street catamaran ferry from Atlantic Highlands, N.J., banged into the mooring as it arrived. Officials say one person is in critical condition with head injuries.

Some patients were carried out strapped to flat-board stretchers, their heads and necks immobilized. About a dozen passengers on stretchers were spread out on the dock, surrounded by emergency workers and firefighters.

A corner of the ferry appeared to have been ripped open like a tin can. It occurred around 8:45 a.m. Wednesday at South Street.
