A ferry crashed into a dock in lower Manhattan this morning — injuring several people onboard, authorities said.

The commuter ferry operated by Seastreak, collided with Pier 11 near Wall Street around 8:45 a.m., officials said.

Emergency workers are evaluating 17 patients on scene, said a spokesman for the FDNY. The severity of the injuries was not immediately known.

Seastreak says they will release a statement later today.

The Seastreak provided “daily, year-round ferry services from Atlantic Highlands and Conners Highlands, NJ to Pier 11 Wall Street, East 35th Street, and shuttle service to the World Financial Center,” according the ferry’s Web site.
