There were 48 passengers, six crew members and three food service workers on board, according to the authority.
The Coast Guard and local fire, police, and harbormaster boats responded to the crash at 9:30 PM on June 16 according to a Coast Guard press release.
Dangerous heat wave to scorch the Southwestern US
A less severe heat advisory was issued Friday for the inland cities of Escondido, San Marcos, Poway, La Mesa, El Cajon and Santee. In Southern California, the hottest temperatures will be in the deserts with highs over 110 degrees.
The Coast Guard says at least four people were injured after a high-speed ferry struck a jetty in Hyannisport and began taking on water.
Response boat crews from Coast Guard Stations Woods Hole, Chatham, and Brant Point are transferring the remaining passengers and crew to safety.
The Coast Guard is investigating the cause of the grounding and working with the Steamship Authority to assess damage and make sure navigation in the area is safe.
Last year, a Steamship Authority freight ferry collided with another ferry docked in Woods Hole when its engine stalled. It can hold up to 400 people.
