MANHATTAN - The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) says it's analyzing recovered data from the ferry that crashed in Manhattan, injuring dozens of commuters.

Investigators say that video has also been recovered and is being studied.

The Seastreak Wall Street was carrying New Jersey commuters across New York Harbor Jan. 9 when it made a hard landing. Passengers tumbled down stairs and into walls. More than 70 people were injured, some seriously.

The ferry captain told the NTSB he could not control the engines as he started to dock, and they later failed.

The NTSB has interviewed 25 injured passengers
