Norway luxury car ship sinks

London/Paris, Dec. 14 (Reuters): A Norwegian-registered ship carrying hundreds of luxury cars sank in the North Sea today after a collision with a container ship in thick fog.

All 24 crew members were rescued before the cargo ship Tricolor sank after the collision at the entrance of the Dover Strait between England and France.

The ship was carrying 2,862 cars, including BMWs, Volvos and Saabs, worth $40 million to $50 million, a spokesman for Norwegian shipping company Wallenius Wilhelmsen Lines said in Oslo. It also carried tractors, crane parts and escalators in 77 roll-on/roll-off containers.
