A cruise ship trying to navigate a lock on the St. Lawrence Seaway slammed into a wall last night, resulting in minor injuries to about two dozen passengers and crew, reports NBC News. All were treated and released at a hospital in Massena, New York, near the Canadian border, and returned to the ship. Not that there was a big rush: Authorities have drained the lock to better assess the damage, and the ship was still stuck there this morning, along with the passengers, reports CNN. The Saint Laurent has about 275 people aboard as it travels, or tries to travel, from Montreal to Toronto. (Read more cruise ships stories.)
