Cargo ship runs aground near Matsonford Bridge

Officials in Conshohocken and West Conshohocken were out on the riverfront early this morning after a cargo ship ran aground on both sides of the Schuylkill River just upstream from the Matsonford Bridge.

The blockage has halted traffic along this section of the river that consists of the occasional fisherman and empty beer can.

The ship, April’s Fools operates under the flag of the Kingdom of Zamunda.
