There was no pollution and no one was evacuated on board the ships, said Lisbeth Jorgensen, duty officer at the operations center of the Danish Armed Forces.

The civilian vessel is confirmed to be a container ship, and after the crash, there was no oil spill.

The reasons for the crash are unknown, but the reports claim that the area was foggy. Denmark is leading the investigation as the crash occurred on the Danish side of the strait.

Denmark also reportedly requested help from Sweden, and a few units and coast guards have been sent to the site for sea rescue.

Ice Rose is being watched to make sure it can safely remain afloat. The Ice Rose was on its way from St Petersburg to Gothenburg, according to seafaring monitoring results.
