On August 18, 2017, about 1920 local time, the Antigua and Barbuda-flagged bulk carrier Mia S was traveling downbound on the Mississippi River near New Orleans, Louisiana, experiencing intermittent engine slowdowns. As the fully loaded vessel began to enter a bend of the river at Six-Mile Point near mile 101, its propulsion engine program restricted the engine to dead slow ahead. Within minutes, the vessel allided with the Nashville Avenue Wharf, damaging its bow above the waterline and the wharf. No pollution or injuries among the 19 crewmembers were reported. Damage to the Mia S and the Nashville Avenue Wharf each amounted to an estimated $1 million.
