PADUCAH — Thursday morning will mark day four in the U.S. Coast Guard's special hearing into the Eggners Ferry Bridge incident.

We're expecting more testimony from crew members on board the Delta Mariner when it hit the bridge, tearing away an entire span back in January.

During Wednesday's testimony, Delta Mariner General Manager Bobby Pepper said the third mate should have seen the ship was veering off its track line.

Thursday, more crew members are expected to testify, including the third mate, Captain Frank Altany.

Remember, you can watch the hearing live here on our webchannel while it's in session.

The hearing is expected to start Thursday morning around 7:15 a.m.
