A Norwegian car and passenger ferry ran aground late Sunday night forcing the evacuation of all passengers.
According to media reports, the ferry MF Sjernaroy (Sjernarøy) ran aground at 10:15 p.m. local time on the north side of North Hidle, a small island in the Boknafjord fjord between Stavanger and Haugesund.
All passengers onboard – 43 according to reports – were evacuated by another ferry. No injuries to the passengers were reported, however one crew reportedly sustained a minor head injury in the accident.
The MF Sjernaroy has since been towed to Stavanger where it will be inspected for damage and repaired.
