Car ferry crash causes Los Cristianos chaos

The Naviera Armas car ferry the ‘Taburiente Volcano’ was damaged at the weekend when one of the car ramps was destroyed whilst docking in Los Cristianos.

The ship, that was en-route from El Hierro, is understood to have collided with the harbour wall due to strong winds, resulting in the ramp striking the bow door as it opened.

The damage rendered the ramp useless, resulting in long delays for passengers on and off the ferry. The ship was finally turned around and unloaded via the rear doors.
