MELVILLE, LA (WAFB) - A spokesman from the Coast Guard said Friday a vessel and several barges collided with the Melville Bridge on the Atchafalaya River.
Terral River Service, a bulk material handling and river transportation service company located in Lake Providence, LA, owns the vessel.
There were some reports the main channel span was closed to river traffic, but a Coast Guard spokesman said it has not. However, there are height restrictions.
Terral River Service is waiting for equipment to do some repairs before it can clear the vessel.
