Authorities are investigating the crash of a Singapore-flagged cargo ship in New Orleans that led to about 4,000 gallons of fuel oil being spilled into the Mississippi River.
The Coast Guard says the vessel slammed into a pier near the Nashville Wharf late Thursday morning. The fuel leak was stopped around 1:30 p.m.
The Canal St. Ferry was allowed to resume service Friday morning, but the Coast Guard kept other restrictions in effect.
