Oops, this isn’t supposed to happen

Alex Stewart captured on video a slow motion collision between two ships in the Welland Canal yesterday.

The two vessels — the Florence Spirt heading down the canal, the MV Alanis heading up — struck each other . As they were both on the same side of the canal.

St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corp.’s Jean Aubry-Morin, vice president of external relations, said the collision took place at 3:55 p.m. south of Port Robinson and is now under investigation by officials.

Because the collision involved two vessels passing each other, Transport Canada officials were to investigate. Seaway inspectors were looking over both vessels.
