Hong Kong ferry was 'crashed into' by another boat

A deadly boat crash in Hong Kong was caused when one vessel crashed into another, claimed a director of the company whose vessel sunk and left at least 36 passengers dead.

Yuen Sui-See of Hongkong Electric said:

Our ship's license was granted just recently, so this is not an issue about inspection. I hope everyone understands that we were directly crashed into.

This is equivalent to a car colliding straight into you, and when this happens, whether or not the car had undergone inspections earlier, is a completely different issue.

– Yuen Sui-see
