Brightie (Barge), U2587, collision, 29 Apr 1886


Description
Full Text

The propeller D.W. RUST ran into the barge BRIGHTIE which was lying at the pier near the mouth of the Creek last evening. The RUST struck the barge on the starboard bow, cutting her down to the water's edge and making a bill of at least $400, for her owners to pay. The accident, it is said, was not due to bad seamanship but to the strength of the current at this point which sheered the RUST from her course, and in spite of all her officers could do, caused the collision. It is said the BRIGHTIE tied up at a very improper and dangerous place. She is coal laden. Her injuries are being repaired at Mills Dry Dock.
