Barge no longer aground in Trenton Channel, Detroit

CLEVELAND – McKee Sons, the self-unloading barge that ran aground in the Trenton Channel in Detroit Friday, was safely moored to the Detroit Edison Pier today at about 3:30 p.m.

It took six tugboats to dislodge the 579-foot vessel.

The coal-carrying barge has shown no signs of pollution and the U.S. Coast Guard will investigate possible damage to the vessel.

The barge was being propelled by the tug Invincible, which notches into the stern of the McKee Sons, when it ran aground. Only the barge itself had run aground.
