Bulk Carrier Clips Brooklyn Bridge
A bulk carrier clipped the bottom of the Brooklyn Bridge Friday night causing its brief closure but no damage to the bridge or ship.
A U.S. Coast Guard official said that the MV Rainbow Quest scraped the bottom of the Brooklyn Bridge with its mast while outbound on New York’s East River at approximately 10:30 p.m. Friday, the Associated Press reports. The bridge was closed for a short period as crews assessed the span, but inspections showed no signs of damage.
AIS Data from MarineTraffic.com showed the Gibraltar-flagged MV Rainbow Quest moored in Providence, RI as of Monday morning.
