ANTIOCH, Calif. (AP) – An old riverboat has sunk in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta.
The Coast Guard says the 87-foot Spirit of Sacramento took on water early Sunday and capsized overnight near Bethel Island in Contra Costa County.
Two people on board the paddle wheel tour boat jumped in a dinghy and made it safely to shore.
The Coast Guard says the vessel may have had as much as 600 gallons of diesel onboard.
Authorities are working to stabilize the riverboat while responding to the oil pollution.
