CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Officials with the U.S. Coast Guard have joined the investigation regarding an incident with a ferry in Port Aransas.

On Monday, a ferry docked in Port Aransas had to be evacuated as a massive vessel in the ship channel came too close to the ferry.

According to witnesses, the ferry was near full when TX-DOT crews began telling people to evacuate as a result of an LNG ship blowing its horn as a warning signal.  The ship was inbound to Cheniere energy when officials say it took a wider turn than usual at Harbor Island due to the placement of another vessel in the channel. According to officials with cheniere, the vessel was always in control.  

Reports indicate that everyone was okay and no collision happened.

The Coast Guard and Port of Corpus Christi are both investigating in the case.
