A lobster boat and a yacht collided off the coast of Rhode Island Tuesday, but there are no reported injuries.

The captain of the 40-foot lobster boat, Squeeze Play, contacted the Coast Guard on Tuesday morning to report the collision with the yacht, Lucia, about 10 miles east of Block Island.

Passengers aboard the damaged Lucia were initially brought aboard Squeeze Play before a crew from Coast Guard Station Point Judith arrived to ferry them back to port. Squeeze Play returned to port under its own power. No injuries were reported.
