'Drunk' Russian sailor crashes massive cargo ship into South Korean bridge

The upper superstructures of a container ship is seen colliding with the bridge

A Russian cargo ship slowly but steadily crashed into a busy road bridge off the coast of Busan in South Korea.

However, the Korea Coast Guard (KCG) said it was not clear whether the captain had actually been steering the almost 6,000-ton vessel when it bumped into the Gwangan bridge in Busan-the country's second largest city.

No injuries were reported, but a section of the bridge was closed off for a safety inspection.

The captain, who had a blood alcohol content of 0.086 percent - above the legal limit of 0.03 percent - was charged and his license was revoked.

In November, the company's CEO resigned, and in December, its annual fashion show saw the worst ratings ever . The impending closings are far more than the 15 stores the brand closes on average every year.

A KCG official said consuming alcohol aboard a vessel isn't punishable by law as long as the person doesn't steer the ship.

The ship then attempted to turn and vacate the area before it was detained by the Korea Coast Guard (KCG).

After the collision, the ship reversed direction; however, the coast guard prevented it from leaving and shepherded it back to port so that the crew onboard could be questioned. It remains unclear if he was steering the vessel at the time of the incident. The ship departed for Vladivostok, Russia on Thursday with 1,415 tons of steel coils.

According to Russian media, it also hit a moored cruise ship just 40 minutes before colliding with the bridge. In this representational image, locals view the stricken Muzma Minin in Falmouth, England, Dec. 18, 2018.
