DOWNTOWN — A packed commuter ferry slammed into a Downtown dock Wednesday, hurting as many as 17 people, officials said.

The Office of Emergency Management said at least one person was seriously injured.

The boat, which ABC 7 said was a Seastreak ferry,  slammed into the dock as it pulled into Pier 11/Wall Street, an FDNY spokesman said.

Seastreak's website says it runs service from Atlantic Highlands, on the Jersey Shore, to Manhattan.

Paramedics rushed to South Street and Gouverneur Lane about 8:45 a.m. They were still on scene roughly 30 minutes later, officials said.

Seastreak didn't immediately comment on the accident, but said that it would release a statement shortly.
