NIZHNY NOVGOROD, July 1 (Itar-Tass) —— The collision of two motor vessels in the Volga River near the Bor town by Nizhny Novgorod on Saturday might have resulted from the conduct of one of the captains, the Volga transport prosecutor’s office said on Sunday.
The Moscow 72 and the Sadko cruise boats collided off the Bor glass factory at about 12:50 p.m. Moscow time. The Moscow 72 had 29 passengers aboard, and the Sadko was carrying 40 passengers.
Acting Nizhny Novgorod prosecutor, his deputy, representatives of the Emergency Situations Ministry, detectives and forensic experts visited the accident scene. The accident did not hurt any passengers or crewmembers. The vessels were damaged, but there was no leak.
“Reasons for the collision are being found out,” the prosecutor’s office said. It noted that negligence of the Moscow 72 captain might have caused the accident.
