A preliminary investigation into the grounding Thursday of an Exxon oil tanker in Long Beach Harbor points to pilot error as the cause of the mishap, a Coast Guard spokesman said Saturday. "It appears the pilot took the vessel north out of the anchorage instead of east to the main channel," said Lt. Steve Danscuk. "That appears to have been the cause of the accident."

The Exxon Long Beach, sister ship of the ill-starred Exxon Valdez, ran aground Thursday morning inside the breakwater in Long Beach Harbor, but officials said that there was no damage to the supertanker and no oil was spilled. Coast Guard Cmdr. Chris Desmond said the 950-foot Exxon Long Beach was under the control of a Long Beach harbor pilot when it strayed into relatively shallow water and became stuck in soft mud. "We're trying to figure out how it happened," Desmond said.
