Freighter American Spirit runs aground near Aerial Lift Bridge
The Aerial Lift Bridge is closed to ship traffic after a 1,004-foot freighter ran aground in the Duluth harbor around 3:30 p.m. today.
M/V American Spirit, loaded with iron ore pellets, struck shore just shy of a breakwall near the northwest side of the lift bridge, behind the Paulucci Building.
Angela Lowder, waiting to take a Vista tour, captured video of the ship as it came to a halt.
