[Watch]: Kuwait Oil Tanker Involved in Head-on Collision


A 46,300 dwt oil tanker operated by Kuwait Oil Tanker Company (KOTC) collided with the 1,688 teu feeder boxship X-Press Mahananda, causing damage to the bows of both vessels.

The accident occurred when the unladen oil tanker Burgan was leaving the port and the containership X-Press Mahananda was coming from the opposite direction, it appears that the two ships misunderstood COLREGS rules as a video of the incident shows them turning into each other.
