Russian Cargo Ship Crashes Into Korean Highway Bridge

February 28, 2019

Wide open seas? Check. Okay cool let's hit that bridge.

This is a video from South Korea of a Russian cargo ship slow-speed crashing into part of the Gwangandaegyo (aka the Diamond Bridge, the same one seen in Black Panther) while trying to...actually I'm not sure what it was trying to do. Apparently not avoid crashing into bridges hard enough though. The ship's captain (whose name has been withheld) was identified as being 'slightly intoxicated' when the accident happened, which I assume is Russian for pass-out wasted, like the same kind of drunk you'd get before working on a roof or with high-voltage electricity.

Keep going for the video. And thankfully there were no injuries reported except to the ship and to the captain's job prospects.

Thanks to JD, who agrees that bridge must have come out of nowhere.

  • I like the drivers that stopped upon seeing the huge ship coming at the bridge, and then just started driving again when it failed to plough through the road.

    Colliding with the bridge in apparently good visibility,and being a Russian ship make one think,"Vodka" !

    So was the captain just gonna drunkenly slam into things until a harbor master showed up or do they not have harbor masters in Korea?

  • Meh

    GOod job retard.

  • GeneralDisorder

    What? I wasn't even there.

    Don't bring a cargo ship to a bridge fight. Just saying.

  • GeneralDisorder

    That's sound advice. You probably shouldn't bring a bridge to a cargo ship fight either. In fact if you hear anything about a bridge fight or cargo fight your best bet is stay the fuck home.

    the addition of porn music to the video was an odd choice

  • Nicholas Conrad

    The actual part he could go under is just around the corner too.

  • Mysterio Don Lefluerflin

    Two things, the first being, why did this have porn music? Second, the porn music was the best part of the video

  • GeneralDisorder

    The kids in the background made the porn music rather unsettling.

  • Now they're trying to interfere with people commuting to work!

    How can you...
    - not see a bridge?
    - aim for the bridge in the first place?
    - basically, end up in this situation?

  • GeneralDisorder

    I don't want to say Vodka was involved but... vodka was likely involved.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    You are actually right...

    "What the video doesn't show, unfortunately, is that the Seagrand then fled the scene like a regular old hit-and-run. Of course, it was still being tracked by the Korea Coast Guard like any other merchant vessel, so a squad of four patrol boats quickly intercepted the damaged ship and forced it back into port. That's when authorities breathalyzed the captain and saw his blood alcohol content was 0.086 percent—the legal limit in this situation is 0.03."

  • How can she slap!

  • Andyman7714

    Draw bridges can be quite temperamental.

  • Nicholas Conrad

    As can non-drawing bridges

  • Andyman7714

    "There's a difference?" -Captain's last words.

    Show some love, this guy spilt his beer trying to put it in the cup holder while getting up again.
