IGNACE (WKZO) -- No one was hurt, but there is damage to both a U.S. Coast Guard cutter and a freighter after a collision near the Straits of Mackinac on Sunday.  The "Port Huron Times Herald" reports the USCG Cutter Hollyhock was hit by a freighter roughly 22 nautical miles west of the Straits while breaking ice

The cutter had significant damage to the stern and fantail, while the freighter has damage to its bow.  The freighter continued on with a convoy of ships carrying iron ore to Gary, Indiana.
