    The collision was reportedly caused by bad weather as strong winds blew the vessel off course. According to local media, no one was hurt in the incident, which occurred in a Barcelona port, where Shipping containers filled with flammable products caught fire as a result of the crash.

    A video of a passenger ferry colliding with a loading crane in a Barcelona port has been published online.

    The footage shows the moment the vehicle hit the crane, causing it to collapse, prompting dock workers to flee as the fire erupts.

    No one was reportedly injured in the incident, which was caused by strong winds and sea currents that kept the ship from mooring and pushed it against the port's crane, according to Grandi Navi Veloci, the Italian company that owns the ferry.
