One injured in boat collision in Perama


A Japanese-flagged cargo ship with a crew of 23 crashed into a Turkish oil tanker with 13 crew members on board that was docked at Neo Ikonio in Keratsini, western Piraeus, Thursday.

A member of the Turkish vessel’s crew was reportedly injured.

An operation involving several tugboats was launched to prevent the Turkish vessel from sinking and an investigation was under way into the cause of the collision.

There were no reports of an oil leak.
