The thing about massive container ships is that when they crash, there is no way it's going to be small. And they're so big, that even while trying to do an emergency turn, they only manage to sweep along ever... so... slowly. Which makes this hit pretty damn big.
Ok, so maybe 51-year-old Craig Gallo deserves to lose his motor vehicle and boating licenses for crashing his fishing vessel into the runway approach lights at Laguardia Airport. But at least he had a good reason.
