  • Oil Tankers Collide Near Lewisporte, TSB Investigating

    The Transportation Safety Board is investigating after two oil tankers collided in the waters off Lewisporte.

    It’s alleged to have happened over the weekend. The vessels in question—The Havelstern and the Travestern—are owned by the Woodward Group of Companies.

    The TSB says they’re still working to determine exactly what happened, but say the large tankers collided during the transfer of cargo. The Travestern is now located in Lewisporte. From the road you can see a large hole in the superstructure of the ship, exposing the cabins or rooms. The TSB says they’re still assessing the damage to both vessels.

    There is no word if there were any injuries.
