A video posted to Youtube shows the moment two bulk carriers collided at an anchorage on the Amazon River in Brazil.

The crash reportedly occurred Wednesday at the Fazendinha anchorage near the port of Macapa when the Bahamas-flagged Polsteam vessel Mazury (pictured left in the video) apparently drifted into the UK-flagged Eden Bay, which was anchored at the time.

Both vessels sustained minor damage in the collision and no injuries or pollution has been reported.

The accident is reportedly under investigation by local authorities.
