Mitsubishi has lost around 1,400 new cars after a car carrier sunk in the North Sea today, claiming five lives, and leaving six others unaccounted for. 

The ship had a crew of  24, 13 of which have been rescued from the wreckage already. “The Mitsubishi cars bound for Russia have been lost,” Mitsubishi spokesman Daniel Nacass said.

The 485 foot car carrier, named the Baltic Ace, collided with a container ship called the Corvus J which caused it to sink. The collision is being blamed on “human error,” though a police investigation is set to follow up.
