The Malta-flagged ferry "Kolossos", owned by NEL Lines, crashed and ran aground early Wednesday on a rocky coast in Vassiliki bay on the Ionian island of Lefkada.

The ship had set sail from Corinth with a 20-member crew, carrying 58 trucks and 10 drivers to Ancona, Italy. The ship suffered a small rift in its sealed tanks but is not in danger of sinking.

A tugboat from Patras was en route to the scene, with a group of divers who will examine the extent of the damage to the vessel. An oil recovery vessel from Skaramangas was also on the way to be on stand-by in the event of an oil slick.

No injuries were reported.
