What Happens When A Cargo Ship Meets A Railway Bridge?

A cargo ship rammed a railway bridge spanning the Ems river in northwest Germany.

The ship somehow managed to plough through the closed bridge.  It is unclear if there was a mechanical fault on the vessel or if the bridge failed to open when it was supposed to.

No one was hurt in the incident.  The authorities say the bridge is so badly damaged that it cannot be repaired and a new one will take years to build.
