Investigators are trying to piece together what went wrong when a casino boat crashed on the Mississippi River near Caruthersville. The brand new casino boat “Miss Bellterre” was en route to Indiana after being built in Mobile, Alabama. The boat was carrying almost 100 crew members and construction workers when it somehow hit a barge around 1:00 A.M. There were no serious injuries. Investigators say it will be another week before they decide whether the casino boat or the barge were at fault.
