Eggners Ferry Bridge Hearings Continue

Apr 19, 2012

Foss Maritime company officials and the second mate of the Delta Mariner cargo ship provided testimony Wednesday in the third day of the U. S. Coast Guard and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) public hearings in the Eggners Ferry Bridge incident investigation. The hearing is being held in Paducah. The Coast Guard and NTSB are determining which entities or individuals may be at fault for the Jan. 26 night-time crash that knocked out a 322-ft. section of the bridge near Aurora. The hearings are not a trial, but are part of a formal inquiry that could lead to sanctions if anyone is found to be in violation of proper procedure and conduct.
