None was hurt when the ship carrying wind components hit the concrete wall while approaching the port.

Officials said the Gibraltar-registered "Thorco Marjanne" was being operated by a ship pilot and not the captain when he apparently misjudged his approach and slammed into the wall, ripping out a small section of concrete and causing a small dent on the front bow.

Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority Executive Director Wade Davis estimated damages to the concrete wall at about $20,000.
