Cargo Ship Runs Aground And Crashes Through Homes

This was the scene of destruction after a giant cargo ship sent residents screaming in terror as it crashed through dozens of homes this morning.

The Vietnamese liner named Star 62 careered towards wooden houses sending dozens of people running into the streets.

It ploughed through the wooden buildings leaving a mangled wreckage in Samut Prakan Province, Thailand at 8.30am.

Three houses were damaged after the crash but miraculously nobody was injured.

Resident Somboon Siritip said: ‘’I saw the ship coming and ran away. My other neighbours were all outside.

‘’Then the ship crashed into the houses. It was very lucky nobody was still sleeping when it happened.

‘’This has never happened before. I think there must have been some problem or mistake with the ship for them to crash.

‘’We’ll be sleeping now with family or friends while the houses are repaired. ‘’

Marine officials have launched an investigation into the crash while the captain and crew were interviewed by police and the vessel’s owners contacted their insurance company.
