U.S. Coast Guard restricts traffic in Ohio River due to sunken vessel

(Reuters) – The U.S. Coast Guard said on Friday a towing vessel with a maximum potential of 1,048 gallons of diesel aboard had sunk in the Ohio River and it issued a waterway restriction between mile marker 979 and mile marker 981.

The towing vessel, Charley Wallace, was fully submerged and there were reports of a sheen on the water, the agency said in a statement.

There were no reported injuries and the cause of the incident was under investigation, it added.
