A charter boat with nine people on board had to be rescued Monday after the captain grounded it near Bonner Bridge in the Outer Banks.

The Coast Guard said the Sandra D hit one of the bridge's support pilings around 6 a.m.

The 58 foot charter boat was left with a 5 by 10 foot hole in the bow.

No one was seriously injured, and the state Department of Transportation plans to survey the bridge to make sure there is no structural damage.
