The Coast Guard is responding to a collision near the Cape Cod Canal this Morning between a tug boat and a barge. It happened just before 11:30 Tuesday Night.

The tug boat lost power while towing the barge, which was carrying cement, that's when the two collided. The barge is taking on about five feet of water, which crews are working to pump out.

There is no reported environmental impact and no reported injuries.
