Passenger Ferry Collides With Pier in Estonia

Late last week, on Friday, June 15 at 3:00PM EEST, an Estonian ferry with the capacity for 400 passengers and 100 passenger cars — Regula, operated by TS Laevad — was involved in a allision accident when it struck the pier, a fixed object.  According to reports, the vessel was traveling the route between two busy Estonian ports, Virtsu (on the mainland) and Kuivastu (on Muhu Island), when it struck the Kuivastu pier and the bow stern — at the front of the vessel — sustained serious structural damage.  Rescue boats were not deployed as they were unnecessary for unloading the passengers, given the circumstances.
