The Panama Canal will investigate the causes that caused the collision, this Tuesday, of a ship against the railway bridge over the Chagres river in the Gamboa community.

The company operating the railroad was immediately notified. Similarly, Panama Canal personnel will inspect the bridge structure to assess the extent of the damage.

Access to and from the Gamboa community is not affected.
