An oil tanker at the Alyeska Pipeline Service Company terminal in Valdez was struck by a tugboat on January 11th. Fortunately, there was no spill. 

The accident was serious, though. The ship's hull was gashed, and a tug crew member was injured. The incident is being investigated by the U.S. Coast Guard. 

The last big spill was in 1989, when the Exxon Valdez ran into Bligh Reef and dumped 11 million gallons of crude oil in Prince William Sound.
