A 615-foot Cypriot tanker experienced a gyro compass failure and slammed into a 200-foot-tall electrical tower on the fog-shrouded Delaware River, grounding itself and blocking ship traffic, the Coast Guard said.

A luxury liner with 1,360 people aboard lost power and ran aground on a sand bar 22 miles north of Cape May in the Delaware Bay separating Delaware and New Jersey. Nobody was in danger, the Coast Guard reported, and passengers on the 642-foot Regent Star said they were enjoying free cocktails. A small electrical fire in a switchboard apparently caused the power failure on what was to be the last day of a seven-day trip from Montego Bay, Jamaica, to Philadelphia.

A Cypriot vessel struck the 400-foot tower Sunday about five miles south of the Delaware Memorial Bridge, snapping power lines and sending the tower into the river.
