The 130 meter long, 11,258 dwt tanker Ternvind collided with the 182 meter long, 6,559 dwt ro-ro passenger ferry Stena Jutlandica off the island of Vinga near Gothenburg, Sweden. The tanker had departed from Gothenburg en route to Halmstad when it struck the portside of the Stena Jutlandica. The ferry sustained significant hull damage with a several meter long hole above the waterline. Reports state the Stena Jutlandica did suffer water ingress, but was able to proceed to Gothenburg under her own power. Many of the 536 passengers on board were awoken by the sound of the crash, but no reports of injuries. Authorities dispatched vessels to monitor the situation and inspect the vessels. No pollution was released. The Ternvind was last reported anchored off Vinga with no injuries or pollution released.
