Ship hits Ray Nitschke Memorial Bridge in Green Bay

As Hagemeister's patio full of stunned patrons watched, the ship Kaye E. Barker struck the CityDeck, left a 16- to 18-foot boat in pieces, and sent kayaks tumbling from the dock into the water.

"They are going to interview the captain of the freighter to understand what he was thinking what happened and figure out the root cause of why this occurred", Capt. Kevin Warych of the Green Bay Police Department said Sunday.

There were no reports of any injuries. A Green Bay police spokesperson wasn't immediately available to comment to The Associated Press. "Everybody started running; this family ran out yelling, 'That's our boat!' It literally was gone in 30 seconds". "Then people just started screaming and yelling".

The Kaye E. Barker, a Great Lakes bulk carrier, is reported to have struck the bridge around 3:25 PM.

It was on its way to MI when the incident happened.
