A hydrofoil with 73 passengers that broke down and began to drift soon after leaving Vung Tau in southern Vietnam collided with an oil tanker Sunday, but no casualties have been reported so far.

According to preliminary information, Greenlines 6, a vessel operated by the Ho Chi Minh City-based Greenlines Joint-stock Company, stalled 15 minutes after leaving Vung Tau at around 7 a.m.

It then ran into Song Chau 1, a tanker anchored in Ganh Rai Bay. The collision left it with a badly damaged prow and glass windows broken.

An hour later another Greenlines boat came and picked up the passengers who were en route to HCMC.

Investigations are continuing.
