The pilot of a freighter that caused a huge oil spill in San Francisco Bay was confused about where he was headed and immediately regretted setting off that foggy morning, according to newly released transcripts.
"Yeah, it's foggy; I shouldn't have gone. It's still, uh . . . I'm not going to do well on this one," Capt. John Cota said minutes after the container ship Cosco Busan sideswiped a support of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge on Nov. 7.
