A foreman who oversees dock workers at Georgia’s busy shipping terminal for automobiles said Tuesday he saw no problems as hundreds of cars and trucks were loaded onto the cargo ship Golden Ray shortly before the vessel overturned after leaving port a year ago. The U.S. Coast Guard and National Transportation Safety Board are holding public hearings this week as they investigate what caused the South Korean vessel to capsize with 4,200 vehicles in its cargo decks after it departed the Port of Brunswick on Sept. 8, 2019.
