Remember a report from earlier this month where a news came that a huge 51,000 tonne vessel called Hoegh Osaka was listed severely to save it from sinking? Well, the vessel was carrying some 1,400 cars on board, including brands like Land Rover, Jaguar and Mini, which were stranded on the ship for almost a month. And now a latest video footage has revealed that the cars are driven out from the cargo ship with some major damages.

Check the first incident report here!

The vessel was carrying a load of 1400 cars including 1200 Jaguars and Land Rovers, 65 Mini Coopers and a Rolls Royce Wraith, through the English Channel in between England and Isle of Wight. According to reports, the vehicle suffered a failure some 45 minutes after leaving Southhampton and started listing heavily on one side, before the crew decided to beach it before capsizing altogether.

It has since limped its way back to port in Southampton, where damage assessments are being conducted on both the ship and its $53-million in cargo. According to Car and Driver, many of the damaged vehicles will almost certainly be scrapped. Still, some of the cars in the video are seen undamaged like the one at 0:50 seconds (a Defender).

The vessel was heading to Bremerhaven port, Germany and had some construction equipment on board it too. No injuries were reported then and the conditions of vehicles are slowly coming forward. It will take only a few days to remove all the cars from the cargo and assess the number of vehicles damaged.
