Video shows the moment the Singapore-flagged cargo ship Xetha Bhum plowed into a pedestrian walkway lining the Chao Phraya River near the Bhumibol Bridge in Bangkok, Thailand. The incident occurred Sunday morning as the vessel was departing Bangkok for Singapore. Luckily it was early so it appears that nobody was on the walkway at the time. 

The AIS track from the vessel below shows exactly where the incident occurred.
