Ship collision causes oil spill 40 miles SE of Galveston | Chronicle | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

Two ships collided about 40 miles southeast of Galvston late Tuesday, causing an estimated 18,000 gallons of oil to leak into the Gulf of Mexico, the Coast Guard said.

The 820-foot tank ship Krymsk began leaking from its fuel tank after it collided with the 166-foot offshore supply vessel AET Endeavor. The Krymsk crew transferred oil from the damaged tank to another tank, and the leak amount was estimated by the captain.

No injuries were reported, and the Coast Guard is investigating
