Ferry Collides with Crane on Dock, Sparking Huge Fire

A passenger ferry caught in bad weather collided with a huge loading crane at the port of Barcelona, Spain, today, causing it to collapse and spark an explosion:


Grandi Navi Veloci, the Italian company that owns the ferry, said in a statement that strong winds and sea currents prevented the ship from docking, eventually pushing it against the port’s crane. Nobody was injured in the accident.

On Tuesday, a Royal Caribbean cruise ship had to make an emergency stop in Spain after experiencing technical issues and allegedly taking on water. The same day, bad weather caused a cruise ship to collide with another vessel in the port of La Spezia, Italy.
