In its continuing investigation of a collision involving a

On Wednesday July 7, 2010, about 2:37 pm, the 250- foot-long

empty sludge barge The Resource, which was being towed by

the 79 foot-long towing vessel M/V Caribbean Sea, collided

with the anchored amphibious small passenger vehicle the

DUKW 34 in the Delaware River, near Philadelphia,

Pennsylvania. On board the DUKW 34 were 35 passengers and

two crewmembers, and on board the Caribbean Sea were five

crewmembers.  Two passengers on the DUKW 34 died in the

accident.

 

The docket will contain factual reports prepared by the

investigative team, including interview transcripts,

photographs and other documents from the investigation.

Additional material will be added to the docket as it

becomes available. 

 

The docket will be published on the Board's website at
