Ship slams into lock on Danube River injuring 3 passengers

A passenger ship slammed into the side of a lock on the Danube River early Tuesday, injuring three elderly passengers, authorities said.

The ship, which was carrying 170 people on a pleasure excursion, hit the concrete lock shortly after midnight (2200 GMT Monday), said police in the province of Upper Austria.

A 70-year-old man suffered a gash to the head, and two women aged 66 and 76 were treated for shock, authorities said.

The cause of the incident remained under investigation Tuesday.
