Italian Ferry with 250 on board Has Problems in Adriatic

Thursday, 09 May 2019 06:40 AM EDT

ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — An Italian ferry carrying 250 passengers and 92 crew members has experienced technical problems while on its way to the Croatian port of Split on the Adriatic coast.

The SNAV company's office in the Croatian port of Split said Thursday that mechanics on board are doing everything to fix the problem and bring the passengers to shore.

The company gave no other details, but Croatian media reported that one of the ferry's engines has malfunctioned and that the vessel has been drifting in the northern Adriatic.

The ferry was traveling from the Italian port of Ancona.

Croatia's public broadcaster HRT says no damage or casualties have been reported. It says the ferry was due in Split around 0500 GMT (1 a.m. EDT) on Wednesday.
