BALTIMORE, Maryland — A cargo ship is stuck after it ran aground in the Chesapeake Bay.

The U.S. Coast Guard is continuing to try to free the 1,000-foot container vessel, called the Ever Forward.

Officials say it's not obstructing traffic and no injuries or damage have been reported so far.

The ship left the Port of Baltimore Sunday headed to Norfolk, Virginia. It's part of the same fleet of cargo ships owned by Evergreen Marine Corp., which also owns the Ever Given.

The Ever Given was the vessel that got stuck in the Suez Canal for a week last year, causing massive problems for global shipping.
