A tow travelling down the Mississippi River Thursday came to halt after one of its front barges collided with the Old Highway 80 Bridge. The tow, at the time, consisted of 30 barges carrying grain. The collision caused five barges to break free. One of them was crushed by the bridge causing it to ultimately sink shortly after. The Louisiana Department of Transportation is investigating the incident as they are deemed responsible for the structure of the bridge. This marks the second barge accident since March.
