The towboat Nature Way Endeavor banks a barge against the western bank of the Mississippi River on Sunday as vehicles travel on the Interstate 20 bridge. A barge carrying 80,000 gallons of oil hit the railroad bridge next to the I-20 bridge, spilling light crude into the Mississippi River and closing the waterway for eight miles in each direction, the Coast Guard said. A second barge was damaged.
