QUEBEC CITY, Nov. 7, 2013 CNW - The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) is deploying a team of investigators to Montréal, Quebec, to assess the M/V Claude A. Desgagnés. The vessel struck the approach wall above the Iroquois Lock On Oct 6 in Brockville, Ontario, and is expected to arrive in Montréal around midnight tonight. The TSB will gather information and assess the occurrence.

Great Lakes and Seaway Shipping reported that the vessel hit hard with the stern, opening up the hull into the engine room. This event halted downbound ships which are going to anchor near Prescott.
