CLEARWATER, Fla. — A pirate-themed cruise ship carrying about 100 passengers ran aground on New Year's Eve.

Crews responded at the Memorial Causeway Bridge when the cruise ship, known as the Pirate's Ransom, ran aground, public safety officials in Clearwater said Saturday night. A second vessel attempted to take some of the passengers to shore also ran aground. Police and fireboats were taking passengers to shore late Saturday night.

A 77-year-old woman was examined at the scene but refused treatment. There were no immediate reports of injuries.

Authorities said fog is believed to have been a factor in the ships running aground. Clearwater is located about 30 miles north of St. Petersburg, on the Gulf coast.
