UK Report, Truck Breaks Loose on Ferry

Thursday, October 01, 2009

The UK Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) issued the report of its investigation of the shift of an articulated road tanker on board a roll-on roll-off high-speed sea service cargo ferry in Loch Ryan, Scotland on 28 January 2009. The truck driver left the truck out of gear and did not apply the parking brake. Neither the ferry’s deck securing points nor the truck’s ferry securing points accorded with applicable international or national standards. The lashing straps were of insufficient strength. The truck broke loose as the ferry accelerated on departure from port and trimmed by the stern. The semi-trailer portion of the vehicle crashed through the stern door of the ferry and came to rest on the vessel’s port water jet units. The ferry was able to return to port. Report No. 21/2009 (10/1/09).
