NY Collision Investigated

Monday, March 17, 2008
The Coast Guard is investigating a collision between a 623-foot freighter and a 216-foot dredge in the upper bay of New York Harbor about one mile north of Staten Island, N.Y., around 9 a.m. today. The freighter Osprey I, carrying scrap metal, collided with the dredge Delaware Bay while traveling outbound for sea. The Delaware Bay is currently dredging the channel for a federal project contracted by the Army Corps of Engineers. The Coast Guard Sector New York Vessel Traffic Service received notification from both vessels after the collision. A rescue crew in a 33-foot Coast Guard Station New York boat was dispatched immediately and was on scene within minutes. The Osprey I sustained a 25-30 foot by 3 foot breach of the hull, 5 foot above the waterline along its right side. The vessel is not taking on water and is in stable condition. The Delaware Bay reportedly sustained minimal hull damage. There are no reports of injuries or pollution. "Coast Guard Marine Inspectors and Investigators are currently onboard both vessels looking into the possible causes of the collision," said Lt. Erica Mack, Sector New York's command duty officer.
