The company that owns these boats called bbtouring. (Http://www.bbtouring.no) They are serious players, so it's hard to be certain on what caused the accident. Police are investigating the cause. However these accident are usually due to human error...

11 people are in hospital. 2 of them have serious injuries, but are stable. The remaining 9 have minor injuries.

Here is a video of the crash site immediately after the accident:

BBC is one of the best. There is some confusion about the details of the accident, but all the key facts are correct.

This accident is a safety reminder. In recent years we have had some ugly rib accidents in Norway. Some people seem to forget; Safety first!
