LOST STEERING CONTROL--RIVER COLLISION
Three collision cases are discussed. They occurred, respectively, on the Danube, Mississippi and Seine Rivers. What they have in common is that each collision was caused by a sheer across the river taken by a deep-draft vessel proceeding upriver. The potential danger of the bow cushion is uppermost in the discussion of the accidents.
