The self-discharging bulk carrier Manitowoc has been freed after it ran aground yesterday in the Detroit River.
The incident delayed the traffic in the area as the bridge was closed for awhile. The Manitowoc was freed by a tugboat at around 9:30 pm local time and continued toward its destination.
An investigation into the incident has been launched.
Manitowoc (IMO number 7366398 and MMSI 367341010) was build in 1973. The 186-metre vessel has a deadweight of 19,335-DWT.
