A ship hit a western Kentucky bridge in January, causing part of it to collapse. Now, the U.S. Coast Guard is planning a hearing to figure out why it happened.

The hearing is planned for April 16th. The Paducah Sun says it will be at the Paducah city hall and could last six days.

The owner of the ship -- Foss Marine -- and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will each make their arguments. Foss says the lights on the bridge were faulty. The state says the ship tried to go underneath in the wrong place.
