Ship collision with bridge results in closure

In Kiel, a ship with its cargo hit the Holtenau high bridges over the Kiel Canal and damaged them in the process. The ship, which was loaded with a crane, was sailing on the canal towards Brunsbüttel early Wednesday morning at 4:37 a.m. when the crane crashed into the bridge, which suffered visible damage, a spokesman for the Kiel police said on Wednesday morning said.

Since it is still unclear how badly the collision damaged the bridge, the bridge and shipping traffic on the canal were initially closed indefinitely in both directions. It was initially unclear how the collision came about and how much damage was caused to property. During the day, the statics of the bridge should be checked.
