The containership OLF collided with two tankers in the Singapore Strait last week, and then took off without stopping or contacting either vessel or maritime authorities.

Following the hit-and-run accident, the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) caught up with and detained the containership.

Vessel Finder: Malaysian flagged tankers Tina 7 and Straits 3 were anchored about 2.7 miles off the coast, when the container ship Olf (ex Elbwolf) while passing them hit both and caused some damages. The Olf did neither stop nor contact the involved ships but instead sailed on. Read more from Vessel Finder here…
