Another Vessel vs Bridge Accident

Barge hits bridge connecting Galveston and Pelican Island [Texas], causing partial collapse and oil spill
The accident happened shortly before 10 a.m., Wednesday, May 15, after a tugboat operator, pushing two bunker [fuel] barges, lost control of them.
No injuries were reported.
