It almost hurts to watch as the Danish cargo ship Skansanes runs hard aground on the rocky coast of Storfjord, Norway.

The calamity happened May 16, according to the Norwegian press.

The 207-foot hopper was carrying sand and apparently suffered minimal damage, proceeding to the port of Valldal, where police boarded it to interrogate the captain.

Police suspect the captain fell asleep at the wheel and do not believe he was under the influence of alcohol, according to the report, which was translated to English and posted on VesselTracker.com.
