STUDY OF COLLISION EFFECTS
Statistics for casualties to ships over 2000 gross tons are given for 1975 and added, in the case of collisions, to previous statistics for the years 1964-1974, so as to give collision-derived casualties. These are differentiated for tanker and non-tanker types, and depending on whether the ship was the struck or striking vessel. The main findings are that about one-fifth of struck non-tankers sink as the result of a collision, and about one-third of struck tankers catch fire or explode.
