Durban - An investigation has been launched by the Transnet National Ports Authority into a collision between a car carrier vessel and a tugboat.
In a video that was posted on Facebook, it shows the CSCC ASIA, operated by Hoegh Autoliners, approach the tugboat Inyalazi.
As the vessel moves closer, port workers start shouting trying to get the vessel to stop but to no avail as the vessel hits the boat which was at the R-shed at the Point precinct. After colliding with the boat, the vessel slowly pulls away from the tugboat.
Nokuzola Nkowane, acting Durban port manager, said an investigation was being conducted into the circumstances around the incident.
