Local News

A barge carrying flammable material hit the Crescent Railroad Bridge on Tuesday because high winds made it difficult to steer.

It happened around 4:15 p.m. at the railroad bridge that crosses the Mississippi River between Rock Island and Davenport.

There was no leakage.

The U.S. Coast Guard is on the way to inspect.
