New York City Council Plans To Hold Hearings On Staten Island Ferry Crash

Oct 20, 2003 | AP

New York's City Council plans to hold hearings on last week's deadly Staten Island ferry accident. Newsday is reporting that the investigation would likely start in mid-November.

Councilman John Liu, who chairs the council's transportation committee, says the hearings won't interfere with a federal inquiry into the crash. He says they'll take a look at dangers created by regulations that may be outdated. For one thing, he says he's disturbed "that so many lives appear to be in the hands of a single individual." He also questions why a warning signal was not part of the boat's equipment.

Another councilman says he expects the city's transportation commissioner will be asked to testify.
