Head On Collision - Hawk Nelson (2006)

You might be aware that over the weekend, an 800-foot (240-meter) oil tanker owned by AET Tankers of Malaysia collided with a towing vessel pushing two barges near Port Arthur, Texas.

While there is remains uncertainly as to how much oil spilled, it is believed to be a fraction of the 450,000 gallons (1.7 million literes) capacity and no where near the 11 million gallons (41.6 million litres) that spilled from the Exxon Valdez in Alaska's Prince William Sound back in 1989.
