Coast Guard: Tank barge emptied, moved after wreck

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Coast Guard says a tank barge involved in a collision on the Mississippi River has been emptied and moved to a repair facility in Westwego.
The Coast Guard estimates that less than 10,000 gallons of oil spilled into the river after the barge pushed by the Clarence W. Settoon and a construction barge pushed by another tug collided on Friday about 50 miles upriver from New Orleans.
The collision tore a hole in the double-hulled tanker barge.
The Coast Guard says it was moved Sunday.
The Coast Guard is investigating the cause of the accident.
