Official: No risk of spill after tanker accident
A port official says there was no threat of an oil spill after a 750-foot tanker collided with a floating rig off the Texas Gulf Coast, tearing a hole in the ship's bow.
Port of Corpus Christi operations director Tony Alejandro says the ship called the "FR8 Pride" was inbound with a load of fuel oil at 7:15 a.m. Wednesday when it lost power and veered into a rig being positioned by tugboats to enter the Corpus Christi ship channel.
