Very nasty collision in Busan, Korea

Recommended Posts

Looked to me like her rudder may have hit the quay? So much overhang in her stern sections.

Unloaded so ship riding a good 8 metres or so (probably) higher in the water than normal.  Under normal load conditions the stern would not have been able to over-hang the quayside line that.

Looks from the videos that the ship was powering forward against the tug that was trying in vain to slow her down.  Propulsion stuck in gear?

It looks like that and then started going astern just before hitting the quay.
