"A total of 64 cars were aboard cargo ship Astongate traveling from Toyama, Japan, to Vladivostok, Russia. After the storm hit the ship -- 52 of them ended up at the bottom of the sea. Whoever bought those cars signed a document allowing the cargo to be transported on ship's deck at their own risk"

I sure hope they bought them cheap!

watching a bit closer ... did they NOT have emergency brakes set? There are several that seem to have both front & rear wheels rolling freely.

The other 12 cars were beat beyond recognition. Yikes.

As icy as that deck was, unless those vehicles were secured directly to the deck, the result likely would have been the same.

I guess they weren't expecting an icy storm on the run to Vladivostok
