Christopher Biggs / Contributor via Getty Images(BALTIMORE) -- The bumpy Mother's Day return of the Carnival Pride is now being investigated.

There were no reported injuries when the cruise ship crashed while docking in Baltimore early Sunday morning, but there was some damage, according to the Coast Guard.

"It looks like it was the gangway that possibly fell and caused some damage to some vehicles that might have been parked underneath it," Petty Officer 3rd Class Jasmine Mieszala of the Coast Guard said.

A statement from Carnival said the gangway's collapse damaged three parked vehicles.

Carnival also said there was "minor" damage to the ship that was "limited to a small mooring deck platform on the starboard side."

The ship was expected to sail Sunday afternoon as scheduled.

Martin was 8 years old when he killed on April 15, 2013, as he watched the marathon from near the finish line with his family. His mother was gravely injured, and his sister, who was 7 at the time,
lost a leg.

Photos from Wednesday's ceremonial groundbreaking show children in hard hats using shovels to dig dirt. Martin's Park, located next to the Boston Children's Museum at the Smith Family Waterfront,
is expected to open in the fall of 2018, according to a press release from the office of Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker.

"This park will bring light & hope to that darkness, honoring his memory & allowing kids to be kids," Baker wrote on Twitter.
