ABC News Automobile 1 month ago

Hungarian police say the deceased captain of a tour boat which sank after colliding with a river cruise ship on the Danube River was not to blame.

Twenty-eight people, mostly South Korean tourists, aboard the Hableany (Mermaid) sightseeing boat died after their vessel collided with the Viking Sigyn river cruise ship on May 29. The remains of a South Korean tourist have yet to be recovered.

Col. Adrian Pal of the Budapest Police said Tuesday that tests showed that the Ukrainian captain of the Viking Sigyn, identified only as Yuriy C., was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the incident.

Pal added that their recently-concluded investigation contained some 11,000 pages of documentation and over 4,200 photos.
