Even Ship Captains Sometimes Can't Drive Worth a Whit

One couldn't get out of the way of the other, in all that space? Apparently not.

According to notes with the YouTube video, this happened in the Straight of Singapore a couple weeks back. The Singapore Coast Guard had to go out and rescue the people on the smaller ship as it started to sink.

I guess the area around Singapore is dangerous. There were reports of another ship collision there this week that killed one person.

Here's the vid of what is to me the improbable collision a couple weeks back:
