    The Coast Guard said a pilot was being transferred from a large ocean vessel into a pilot boat near Sandy Hook when the two boats "bumped." 

    Three people were treated for minor injuries at the scene, and another person was taken to a local hospital. 

    The pilot was responsible for bringing the large vessel into the port, the Coast Guard says.
