The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has released a Marine Accident Brief about the sinking of the 'St.Rita' on March 31, 2020. The tug was shifting the hopper barge 'LTD 14161' across the Mississippi River to the Cooper Consolidated La Place fleeting area, about 23 miles west of New Orleans, Louisiana, when the collision occurred. The vessel then became pinned against a barge block broadside to the current, heeled over and sank. The five crewmembers on board abandoned the tug by climbing aboard the barge and were later rescued by a Good Samaritan towing vessel. No pollution or injuries were reported. The submerged vessel was considered a total constructive loss and was valued at $1.5 million. The NTSB determined that the probable cause of the collision was the captain?s inexperience in executing a fleeting operation on a single headline in heavy river current conditions in close proximity to the head of a block. However, the report notes that the captain?s sounding of the general alarm, when he felt he was losing control and before the boat listed, gave the crew additional time to muster and a warning of the dangerous situation. This action mitigated the occurrence of serious injury and loss of life.
