Two Boats Collide, One Sinks Off Cape Hatteras

A collision between a shrimp boat and a catamaran Tuesday morning caused the shrimp boat to sink out in the Atlantic off Cape Hatteras.

Four people on the 67-foot Tina Rae were rescued by the Locura after the two collided around 3:00 a.m. near Diamond Shoals.

The Coast Guard says the Locura was damaged in the collision, but was able to proceed on its own power.

The cause of the collision is under investigation.
