Baku-APA. Five people were injured in the collision between a foreign tanker and a Turkish seabus in Bosphorus strait near the Turkish city of Istanbul on Friday evening, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

Turkish seabus captain Sercan Karabiyik told media that five people, including four passengers and one crew member, were injured in the accident and sent to hospital for treatment.

The collision happened when the Yenikapi-1 seabus was arriving at Kabatas on the European side of the Bosphorus from Bostanci on the Marmara coast on the Asian side. The seabus was hit by a tanker near Maiden's Tower at the entry of the Bosphorus around 7: 25 p.m. local time.

So far, the Bosphorus is open to traffic, although departures from Kabatas, which is one of the busiest transportation stations located near Dolmabahce Palace, have been temporarily halted.

Istanbul police were deployed to the area, with the investigation going on.
