Ferry accidents fault by human errors
NEW YORK -- More than 30 accidents on Staten Island ferries since 1978 have been attributed to negligent captains or other ferry workers, according to a review of safety records from the U.S. Coast Guard .
Passengers or crew members were hurt in at least 50 accidents, the review found, but some of those were due not to crashes but to falls and other mishaps.
The statistics were gathered by the New York Times from a survey of 1,500 Coast Guard records from the last 25 years.
