NEW YORK - The National Transportation Safety Board is testing control navigation systems on the Seastreak Ferry in an effort to determine what caused the New York-bound vessel to crash Wednesday morning.

Investigators spent more than three hours yesterday questioning the captain of the vessel that's now docked at the Atlantic Highlands Marina. They also requested cell phone records from the entire crew.

The captain told investigators the vessel suffered mechanical failure when he tried to put it in reverse.
