Accident: Main Blocked / Rhine Ships collided

Quite a busy day.

Main blocked

This morning a cargo ship hit a wall next to an interstate bridge in the vicinity of Wertheim and is now blocking the Main river between Würzburg and Aschaffenburg. Pictures are available here. On some one can identify reporters from a federal tv station, I'll keep you informed and will post the film when it's put online.
