Cargo Ship Capsizes with Thousands of New Cars on Board

Sebastian Blanco,Car and Driver 10 hours ago

From Car and Driver
  • A cargo vessel carrying several thousand new cars capsized on Sunday off the coast of Georgia, and four crew members are missing.
  • According to Reuters, Hyundai and Kia vehicles were the cargo on board; the Korea Herald said the vehicles were headed to the Middle East for export and that some were Kia Motors cars while others were from "other global carmakers."
  • The Coast Guard is continuing rescue efforts today.
A massive cargo ship potentially carrying over 4000 new vehicles capsized in Saint Simons Sound near the Port of Brunswick in Georgia early Sunday morning.
The M/V Golden Ray is a vehicle cargo vessel that local news reports say was carrying 4200 vehicles as it left the harbor on its way to Baltimore. Reuters is reporting that they were Hyundai and Kia vehicles; we have reached out to the automaker for confirmation.
For reasons not yet understood, the ship turned and fell on its port side before making it to the open ocean. There were 24 people on board when it fell sideways into the water: 23 crew members and one pilot. The U.S. Coast Guard rescued 20 of the crew members before rescuers noticed a fire with black smoke coming out of the cargo hold and decided it was too dangerous to attempt further efforts. Four people remain unaccounted for. As of Sunday afternoon, there was no active release of pollution, the Coast Guard said, but it and other agencies are monitoring the situation. The question of the ship's stability is an ongoing investigation, according to the Coast Guard.
Automakers have dealt with the loss of an entire ship's worth of vehicles before. In 2006, as C/D reported at the time, a cargo ship called the Cougar Ace capsized when it was near Alaska on a journey from Asia to North America with $103 million worth of brand-new Mazdas on board. The 23-member crew needed to be rescued, and all 4703 cars were eventually crushed.
The Golden Ray was built in 2017 and was sailing under the flag of the Marshall Islands. It has the capacity to carry 6933 vehicles and is owned by GL NV24 Shipping and operated by Hyundai Glovis. Both companies are based in Seoul, South Korea. Rescue efforts are ongoing.

I don't know how those chinks can see when they drive. You could blindfold them with dental floss.

What's the difference between a chinese car and a korean car?
Korea has over 8% of US auto market share. China has none.
On the other hand, the US manufacturers have about 20% market share in China.
One of the reason's the tariff war is a losing one. Trade gap with China is growing, not shrinking.

Either the cars stand on the lot and don't get sold or they are sunk and the manufacturer breaks even.

If the ship was headed to the Middle East, WTF was it doing off the coast of Georgia?

Didn't read the article, but I would guess that they were assembled in the usa.

Nothing to applaud. The more Kias that sink, the more wealthy and powerful Korean auto manufacturing becomes. The insurance industry is structured that way.

I just can't get past the acronym.

I thought they might change the name by now.

I am pleased that the crew members were saved.

I'll bet they loaded the cars and forgot to set the brakes...

Wave shifted the load and everything rolled to one side!

Doesn't appear to be in deep water.... those cars aren't wet....

The Coast Guard and port partners are searching for the remaining four crewmembers aboard the 656-foot vehicle carrier GOLDEN RAY, in St. Simons Sound, near Brunswick, Georgia, Sept. 8, 2019. A Coast Guard MH-65 Dolphin helicopter aircrews and other port partners rescued 20 people after it was reported the vessel was disabled, listing, and had a fire on board.

if anything, they'll need to be dried out, the harness' cut from the wheels of the one's that haven't shifted, and unloaded in the quickest manner possible...without further damage to the body, suspension, tires, electrical systems, battery electrolite, transmission vents...

U.S. rescues last crew member from stricken South Korean ship


(Reuters) - Rescue workers on Monday freed the final crew member trapped inside a South Korean cargo vessel that flipped on its side off the coast of Georgia, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

Salvage crews gradually drilled an opening in the ship’s massive hull on Monday, first to deliver food and water to the survivors, then to extract them, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

The last missing crew member emerged from the hole at around 6 p.m. ET (2200 GMT) and was able to stand on the hull of the ship as rescue workers helped him, a USCG Twitter video showed.

The final crew member had been trapped behind a glass panel in the ship’s engineering control room and was the only one of the four who did not get any food and water when rescuers broke through the hull around 35 hours into their ordeal.

Temperatures for rescue workers on the outside of the ship rose to 120 fahrenheit (49 Celsius) and USCG Captain John Reed told reporters he believed it was even hotter inside the vessel.

Asked about the condition of the three crew members rescued earlier, Reed said two of them had been able to walk off the hull of the ship and get on a tugboat. All three were taken to hospital.

He declined to comment on what might have caused the vessel to tip over as it transported cars.

“Operations will now shift fully to environmental protection, removing the vessel and resuming commerce,” USCG tweeted.

Helicopters rescued 20 crew members from the 656-foot (200-meter) Golden Ray on Sunday after it became disabled, began listing and eventually fell helplessly on its side in St. Simons Sound, near Brunswick, Georgia, the Coast Guard said in a statement.

The ship had previously called at the Port of Brunswick and was headed to Baltimore, according to the Vessel Finder website. The carrier was built in 2017 and was sailing under the flag of the Marshall Islands, it said.
