Video Frontal collision between two vessels on Welland Canal yesterday (Canada)
Found on YouTube. Created by "Welland Memes TV".
An investigation is underway following a collision between "Florence Spirit" and "Alanis" in the Welland Canal.
The incident occurred around 4 p.m. Saturday near Port Robinson when the dry bulk cargo ship "Alanis", which was carrying windmill parts to Duluth, Minnesota, collided during a passing maneuver with the "Florence Spirit", which was carrying coal on its way to Quebec.
According to the "Welland Tribune", the Florence Spirit was heading down the canal while the MV Alanis was heading up the canal just south of Port Robinson when the accident happened.
A St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation official told the Tribune that the two vessels collided starboard side to starboard side, adding that the Florence Spirit sustained more damage because it was sitting lower in the water.
The Alanis was carrying windmill parts to Deluth, Minnesota, and the Florence Spirit was carrying coal to Quebec.
No one was injured in the crash and no cargo was spilled.
The collision did not interrupt traffic on the canal.
Both ships were towed to two different locations. The Alanis is currently docked at Port Colborne while the Florence Spirit is docked in Thorold.
We're working to gather more information about the incident.
