The shipping traffic between northern Netherlands and Germany came to a standstill after a 112 meter long coaster crashed into the railway bridge near Weener, Germany on Thursday night. The ship is still stuck at the bridge, blocking the way for any water traffic. Rail traffic between Bad Nieuweschans, Groningen and Germany is also down, BNR reports.

Marie-Lou Gregoire of the Groningen Seaport told the broadcaster that the accident was caused by a "miscommunication". A train was coming and the bridge could not be lifted immediately, but the captain of the coaster kept going.
