Massive Barge Crashes into Texas Bridge Causing Partial Collapse

A major bridge in Texas has been struck by a cargo ship causing a partial collapse, according to breaking reports.

The massive barge crashed into the Pelican Island Bridge in Galveston on Wednesday morning.

The incident has brought traffic to and from a small residential island to a standstill.

Officials are currently scrambling to determine whether the structure is safe from collapse.

The incident happened around 10 am on Wednesday, according to the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office.

The strike caused a piece of a railway line attached to the Pelican Island Causeway to fall into the water.

However, the majority of the bridge appears to be intact.

According to KPRC, the incident resulted in an oil spill.
