Striking video of the collision in Singapore Strait

Turkish bulk carrier Beks Halil collided with unidentified cargo vessel, general cargo or bulk carrier, in Singapore Strait, the exact date and time are unknown. Beks Halil was obviously overrunning  the smaller vessel, but at a very close distance, dangerously close (most probably because bulk carrier couldn’t take more to the left because of the opposite traffic). To make things worse, the smaller vessel suddenly started to turn left, it seems like the watch woke up,  paniced and reacted by sheer instinct to do something. Video was taken by the crew of nearby vessel and published in YouTube. Nobody luckily, was injured, except of course the vessels, both should suffer damages to some extent. Turkish vessel is not without its’ share of guilt, too – vessel should reduce her speed until receiving confirmation from the smaller vessel that they monitor the situation and will keep on straight course to let the bigger vessel pass by.  See photos and video at http://www.news.odin.tc/index.php?page=view/article/177/Striking-video-of-the-collision-in-Singapore-Strait
