A ship carrying 4,000 cars sank after colliding with an oil tanker just south of Singapore, authorities said.

The collision between the tanker MT Kaminesan, carrying 279,949 tonnes of crude oil, and car carrier MV Hyundai occurred late Saturday, the Maritime and Ports Authority of Singapore said.

"Prior to the collision, warnings were given to the two vessels by the MPA's vessel traffic information service. The two vessels also communicated with each other," it said in a statement.

The accident occurred six kilometres southeast of the resort island of Sentosa just before midnight, authorities said.

All 20 crew members of the Hyundai were rescued before it sank, the authority said.

There was no immediate leak of oil from the Panama-registered Kaminesan, Maritime and Ports Authority spokeswoman Theresa Pong said.

She said both ships were transiting through the city-state, one of the world's busiest ports.

One went left, the other went right!!!

Was in Sunday's news, so must have been the past couple of days.... :)

I guess a (however many thousand tonne) ship doesn't turn even as well as a goldwing two up :p
