Oil Spill Ship Moved To Pier Near AT&T Park For Repairs

The large container ship that rammed the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and spilled 58,000 gallons of oil has been moved to a pier near AT&T Park for some temporary repairs.

Crews are doing work on a large gouge on the side of the Cosco Busan.

The ship is currently in dry dock at Pier 70.

The November 7th collision opened a gash in the vessel's hull, leaking the fuel that contaminated miles of coastline and killing thousands of birds.

The ship's pilot, Capt. John Cota, has told investigators there were indications of problems with his two radars before the ship left its berth.
