Luxury Cruise Ship Clips Bridge

A luxury cruise ship has clipped a bridge on the Cape Cod Canal in Massachusetts on Wednesday night, October 12.

The Viking Star which is operated by Viking Cruises clipped the Buzzards Bay Railroad Bridge and it was all caught on video. According to Cape Cod Times, the ship passed under the bridge at around 7:08 PM and the local Army Corps is investigating the incident.

Watch Ship Clipping Bridge:

As seen in the footage above by Katie Barlow the Viking Star can be seen sailing slowly under the bridge. It seems a mast near the ships main funnel clipped and scraped along the bridge. It’s unclear if anything important was damaged.
