WASHINGTON, DC – Following today’s crash of a Seastreak Ferry from Highlands, NJ in Lower Manhattan, U.S. Senator Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) spoke with Deborah Hersman, the Chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) to discuss the NTSB’s immediate action plan to launch an investigation into the cause of the accident.
“I was assured by Chairman Hersman that this serious accident will receive a full and thorough investigation,” said Lautenberg, Chairman of the Commerce Surface Transportation Subcommittee. “Ferry systems are crucial for New Jersey commuters, and the public must have every assurance that the ferries they ride are operating safely. I have every confidence in Chairman Hersman and the NTSB, and I know they will conduct a first-rate investigation so we can take steps to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.”
