The 62 meter long ro-ro passenger ferry Sterna allided with a pontoon at the ferry terminal in Lillmälö, Pargas, Finland. The ferry was arriving with 21 passengers when it suffered a malfunction and struck the pontoon at a high rate of speed.
The Sterna struck hard enough that the pontoon became entangled with its hull. Reports state one ramp also sustained significant damage. The damaged ramp was completely unusable preventing some 16 vehicles to be unloaded.
Reports state some of the 21 passengers required some medical attention, but no reports of injuries. The Sterna was taken out of service for repairs.
