Thursday, November 08, 2007
The U.S. Coast Guard received a report of a container vessel Cosco Busan allision with the San Francisco Bay Bridge. The vessel was out bound with a pilot onboard at the time of the allision. The vessel reported damage to the forward left side and bulk fuel (MF 380) was leaking from the vessel. Visibility was limited during the time of the allision due to fog. U. S. Coast Guard and San Francisco Police Department are enforcing a 100 foot saftey zone around the vessel and the fuel in the water and CALTRANS is assessing the San Francisco Bay Bridge. The vessel is currently being moved to Anchorage 9. U. S. Coast Guard pollution investigators and marine inspectors from Sector San Francisco are conducting investigations into the amount of bulk fuel spilled and the cause of the allision.
