NAGS HEAD, N.C. (AP) — The Coast Guard says it’s investigating the collision of a tugboat with an old bridge on the Outer Banks.

The Coast Guard said in a news release Sunday that that tugboat Miss Bonnie collided with the Old Bonner Bridge. The replacement for the aging Bonner Bridge opened earlier this year.

The Coast Guard said no one was injured. All eight people aboard the tugboat made it safely ashore. No pollution was reported due to the crash.

The news release said the collision left the tugboat semi-submerged and leaning up against the bridge.
