Investigation and pollution teams from Coast Guard Marine Safety Office New Orleans are responding this afternoon to a collision between two vessels in the Mississippi River in downtown New Orleans. The collision occurred between the 774-foot motor tanker Eagle Memphis and the 55-foot tug Mr. Craig while both vessels were northbound near mile marker 93, just south of Algiers Point, at about1:30 p.m.> The collision resulted in a 13-foot hull-breach in the starboard fuel tank of the Eagle Memphis causing an estimated 50 barrels of heavy fuel oil to spill into the waterway. The area around where the collision occurred was closed to maritime traffic for about two hours, but has since re-opened. There were no reports of any injuries.

Interestingly Eagle Memphis was involved in another collison 20040228, about 20 mi NW of Guernsey, damaged to port side. It is weird to have a collision with both vessels north bound??? USCG pictures as http://www.piersystem.com show the Eagle Memphis moored at a terminal with the slick still very obvious. Daytime, weather looks good???? She may have been mooring at the time.
