Two vessels were involved in a collision in waters off Muar at 14.1 nautical miles southwest of Kuala Sungai Muar around midnight on Saturday (10 July), according to the Malaysia Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA).

Johor State Maritime Director, First Admiral Nuru Hizam bin Zakaria, said the Malta-flagged bulk carrier Galapagos suffered a failure of its steering system resulting in its collision with the United Kingdom-flagged Zephyr Lumos.

Preliminary investigation by authorities found an oil spill in surrounding waters; no casualties were reported.
