Damaged Freighter Moved From Miami

Thursday, May 04, 2006
A 300-ft. freighter damaged when it slammed into a seawall on May 2 has been moved from the Port of Miami to its terminal on the Miami River for repairs, as the investigation continues into the accident which caused the damage. Court Guard officials say they have questioned the crew and the pilot to was guiding the ship to sea from the Miami River, but still have no solid information about what may have caused the accident. The freighter was taking on water at the Port of Miami after a large chunk of the Hyber Star’s bow was ripped off in the accident as it exited the Miami River. The ship was using its own power to navigate, but after the accident three tugboats showed up to see if they could help out. The Panamanian registered ship was heading for Haiti with a shipment of frozen chicken. That chicken was unloaded on May 3. Investigators will look at the ship’s safety records, how fast it was going, and other factors beyond the control of the crew that might have contributed to the accident. No injuries were reported in the incident. (CBS4 News)
