Russian sailor, possibly inebriated, smashes cargo ship into South Korean bridge

The Yonhap News Agency reports that a 6,000 ton cargo ship under the command of a drunk Russian captain ran into the Gwangan Bridge in Busan today before "turning back to head in the opposite direction."

The lower part of the bridge sustained damage, but no injuries were reported.

The captain had a blood alcohol content of 0.086 percent. The legal limit is 0.03 percent.

"Authorities were also trying to determine why the ship was heading toward the bridge in the first place, when it should have been going in the opposite direction," reports the paper.
