-- Video footage taken from a drone shows a cargo ship loaded with luxury cars tilted at 52 degrees in waters off the coast of England.
The Höegh Osaka, owned by
Norwegian company Höegh Autoliners, was heading to Germany Saturday with roughly 1,200 Jaguars and Land Rovers on board, according to Jaguar Land Rover, and also Mini Coopers, according to British media. Passengers on a passing car ferry take photographs of the Hoegh Osaka after it ran aground on a sand bank, Jan. 4, 2015 in Cowes, England. Höegh Autoliners CEO Ingar Skiaker said on Sunday that the 25 crew members were evacuated, including two crew members who were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. A salvage tug lights the hull of the Hoegh Osaka cargo ship after it ran aground on a sand bank in the Solent, Jan. 4, 2015 in Cowes, England.
"At this stage, it is too early to speculate on the cause of the list but we are starting an immediate investigation," Skiaker said.
