A huge ferry crashed into a dock, crushed containers as its ramp broke, blocking the pathway for cars. People ran away in panic as the boat, which had travelled from Puerto Rico to the Dominican Republic, crashed into a dock during a berthing manoevure. The accident happened in the port of Sansouci, in the city of Santo Domingo, capital of Dominican Republic. It damaged the dock and left vehicles on the road unable to get through. Victor Gomez Casanova, the director of the Dominican Port Authority, said that neither the crew nor any passengers were injured.

The ramp that connected the boat with the dock also moved, crashing into containers. Videos from witnesses show the way the giant boat ramp moves and crashes into containers, as people flee in a panic.An investigation to determine how the crash happened has been opened. Despite the damage, the activity at the port is continuing normally, Casanova said. But he did say all types of manoeuvre in the port could be risky. Nestor Gonzalez Garcia, the President of the company Caribe Ferries, told the press the emergency protocol was activate, so nobody was injured. The boat was not badly damaged and should be back in service within two weeks.
Shocking dashcam footage of the moment a car was hit by an oncoming ute as it entered a roundabout in the pouring rain has surfaced online. The video shows the motorist hit by the vehicle approaching from the right-hand side. The incident, which occurred in Townsville, Queensland on Friday, has generated a mixed reaction on social media. As the driver of the car reaches the roundabout he appears to enter without pausing to look to his right. The white ute then zooms through the junction and crashes into the other car as the driver swears in surprise. 'F***ing Jesus... where was he?' the car driver yelled as the ute swerves off the road and onto a grass strip to the left of the roundabout after hitting a give way sign in the process. Both drivers appear to stay inside their vehicles as they recover from the shock of the collision before the footage cuts out.
This is the dramatic moment two sisters aged five and one were rammed into fence by a car but lived to tell the tale. Mandy White, 42, was walking her children Poppy and Taylor to school in Benfleet, Essex when two cars collided at a junction. One was sent swerving off the road and careered into the children, pinning them against a fence. The traumatised mother said her family is 'lucky to be alive' after the horror smash on Wednesday. CCTV footage shows the car being knocked out of control after another clipped it. It mounted the pavement and rammed into Poppy and 17-month-old Taylor, who was in a pram. The distraught mother can be seen scrambling to the aid of Poppy, who was trapped under the front of the vehicle. The mother-of-four said: 'A white Vauxhall Corsa went straight through the junction of The Avenue and Seymour Road instead of giving way. The lines are so faint that they are barely visible. 'It clipped the back of a silver Toyota Yaris which forced that car to spin 90 degrees and mount the pavement. 'The car hit us and pinned me, my Taylor who was in a pram, and my five-year-old daughter Poppy up against a fence. 'I remember lying on the floor and my five-year-old was laying right next to me with the car over her legs. 'We were all screaming because the car was still revving and I thought that car was going to crush my children. I don't remember how we got out. We're lucky to be alive.' Ms White feared her children would be crushed as they were trapped between the car and the fence. The family was rushed to hospital with Ms White being treated for a facial injury and Poppy treated for leg injuries. Luckily the young girls avoided long term injuries though Ms White has suffered whiplash and says she is 'really hurting at the moment'. Ms White said the mental scars of the incident are taking a toll. She has been left traumatised by the ordeal as has her eldest daughter Ellie, 11, who witnessed the incident. She added: 'To move on from this I need answers. The thought of walking my kids to school gives me such anxiety at the moment. 'My heart is pounding just speaking about it. 'If it hadn't been a fence and it was a brick wall I think Poppy certainly wouldn't be here now. 'I really thought I was going to lose them [my two younger daughters] that day. I just keep reliving it in my head. 'We really were very lucky. We really don't want to be apart from each other at the moment.' Lee Scarisbrick, 58, who lives on the junction in Benfleet, Essex, caught the crash on his CCTV camera. Mr Scarisbrick said: 'It's harrowing to watch. You can't quite believe how Mandy and her children weren't killed. 'The lady driving the car that was clipped was absolutely traumatised because she thought she could have killed them. 'This junction has seen many accidents over the last 30 years that I've lived here. On the same day I saw three other vehicles overshoot the junction. 'I first reported it to the council in 2015 but they say the lines do not meet the requirement for repainting. It's going to take a fatality before they do anything.' He and Mandy have both urged Essex County Council to repaint the give way markings. Essex Highways has responded to the issue. A spokesperson said: 'Our inspectors will visit and check the lines and repaint if required. However, there are also prominent 'Give Way' signs on posts at the junction.'

A firefighter was almost killed while tackling a blaze at a gas station. Dramatic video footage shows the entire front of the building in Iron Mountain, Michigan, collapse, trapping the fireman underneath. The man, who has not been named, was trapped for around two minutes as other rescuers frantically tried to free him by removing the burning hot debris that had fallen around him. Onlookers applauded when they realized the firefighter had been rescued, and was standing while crew members helped to get him medical care. The firefighter was treated for burns at Dickinson County Memorial Hospital and released. Fire crews were dispatched just after 3pm on Saturday afternoon after there were reports of smoke coming through the building. Flames were seen shooting through the roof as the blaze consumed the entire EZ Stop storefront and a portion of the Burger King restaurant. It was soon after crews arrived on scene that one was caught out by the falling portion of the building. A second Iron Mountain firefighter suffered smoke inhalation and both were transported to hospital. The fire was declared under control at about 6pm and all fire crews cleared the scene at about 8.15pm.
This is the dramatic moment that dozens of Good Samaritans rushed to help a man, 61, after he was pinned between two cars. Surveillance footage shows the moment a terrified Carlos Green tried to dive out of the way after a speeding stolen car slammed into another motorist, sending both vehicles careening off the road, straight for him. The two cars smashed through a lamppost and hit a wall, pinning Green - who had been standing in between them - in the middle on Friday. 'Man those cars came out of nowhere and Carlos was just helpless,' Troy Robertson, who witnessed the crash and rushed to save his friend, told Fox. Cops say the speeding Chevrolet had been stolen, and the driver and passenger were seen fleeing the scene - running past the 61-year-old who was screaming for help. The woman who was driving the gold Cadillac they smashed into was not seriously hurt. 'Yeah, he tried to jump out of the way, but he just got pinned underneath the Cadillac. He definitely hurt his right leg. When I saw all that I screamed, "somebody help me help get this car off Carlos,"' Robertson said. Robertson and his friend Orlando Gentry, both of whom work at a clothing shop across the street in Kansas City, rushed to help Green. 'We ran over there and just kept screaming 'somebody help us' and then we all just kept struggling at first, and then we finally got that car off him,' said Gentry. Their efforts quickly drew attention, and more and more people arrived to help. Within two minutes, around two dozen Good Samaritans were at the scene, to help lift the car and free Green. The 61-year-old was rushed to hospital with a suspected broken leg. But friends say he has already been released, on crutches with a cast, 'but he's okay and that's all that we cared about,' said Gentry. Police are now hunting for the two suspected car thieves who are also wanted for the hit and run.

This is the moment a crash for cash fraudster staged a collision at a busy motorway toll unaware it had been caught on film. Mohamed Rahman, 27, cut into a line of queuing traffic and then blamed the other driver in a bid to get compensation, claiming the crash had reignited a painful back injury. But his deceit was later uncovered after he was filmed by cameras covering the busy M4 Severn Bridge crossing last June. Rahman has now been jailed for six months. Rahman had been behind the wheel of his Toyota Corolla when he cut into a line of traffic queuing for an open booth. He then slammed on his brakes causing a Golf to shunt into the back of his car. Rahman and the other driver got out with the Golf driver taking photos of the damage Rahman had caused to his car. But after exchanging details Rahman made a false insurance and personal injury claim. Rahman told his insurer he had been driving in the correct lane towards the toll booth when the other driver had cut in damaging his motor instead. He even contacted a claims management company and a local solicitor's firm to make a personal injury claim for his hurt back. But when blamed for the crash, the Golf driver gave a different account to his insurer and an investigation was launched. CCTV footage revealed Rahman was lying and the case referred to the Insurance Fraud Enforcement Department (IFED) of City of London Police. When interviewed by detectives Rahman denied he accused the victim of driving into him and claimed his insurer and solicitor must have misheard him when he spoke to them on the phone. But telephone recordings clearly revealed Rahman saying the other driver had driven into him and he was not responsible. He then admitted the scam but tried to blame 'a friend' who suggested he could make some money by blaming the other driver and putting in a claim. Rahman, from South Wales, was convicted of fraud by false representation at Cardiff Crown Court last Tuesday. Detective Constable Ian Cambridge, of City of London Police said: 'Rahman tried to pull the wool over everyone's eyes in order to make a profit. 'This greed however has only led to him receiving a criminal record and a prison sentence. 'By working together with all of those involved including the insurers, solicitors and the victim, we have now managed to ensure that he has been brought to justice. 'The result should act as a stark warning to those who may consider placing a false insurance claim. 'It simply is not a good idea and there will only be negative consequences as we have clearly seen in the case of Rahman.'
There were a lot of things wrong in this situation, this whole event could have been diverted if the driver had simply looked before illegally crossing the double yellow into the Carpool (HOV) lane. The driver that cut me off was in a rental and had bypassed the insurance paperwork. Always have proper coverage!

Clearly the overtaking driver is at fault here, but a collision may have been avoided had the brakes worked properly. According to reports neither driver was seriously harmed.
