  • The upper superstructures of a container ship is seen colliding with the bridge

The Korean Coast Guard said the almost 6,000-ton cargo ship caused about a 15-foot hole in the lower portion of the Gwangan Bridge.

The ship then attempted to turn and leave the area before it was detained by the Korea Coast Guard.

A Russian cargo ship has crashed into a busy bridge in South Korea.

Video footage of the crash shows the surreal moment the massive ship inches its way towards the bridge filled with motorists, who were completely unaware of the collision about to occur.

The KCG said the captain had a blood alcohol content of 0.086 percent, well above the legal limit of 0.03 percent and high enough to warrant the revocation of his license.

Authorities were also trying to determine why the ship was heading toward the bridge in the first place, when it should have been going in the opposite direction. It damaged the lower part of the two-level structure.

Drinking alcohol on-board is perfectly legal so as long as the person is not steering, the KCG said. No injuries were reported, but the bridge was closed for safety checks, the Korea Herald reported.

It's not yet known if the captain was at the helm of the ship when it hit the bridge.

The ship is said to be a 6,000-ton freighter, which was on the way to Vladivostok, Russia.
