Cruise ship strikes Jacksonville bridge

A cruise boat struck the Main Street Bridge Friday night, shutting down the bridge to traffic.

The ship, called the American Star, is a large river cruise boat and was attempting to moor on the South Bank before it drifted into the bridge, says the U.S. Coast Guard.

No damage was reported to the boat, but before the bridge can reopen an inspection must be done.

At this time, no injuries have been reported.
