A tanker crashed into an 18th century waterfront mansion on Istanbul’s Bosphorus, Saturday, reportedly after its steering equipment locked and it veered off course.
Shipping along the waterway was postponed in the wake of the incident.
The ‘Vitaspirit’ tanker was towed away from the site of the crash. No casualties have been reported but the Hekimbasi Salih Efendi Mansion sustained severe damage
