Two cargo vessels collided in the Panama Canal, causing no casualties or economic losses, Panama Canal's administration confirmed Wednesday.

The two vessels, "White Mist" from Panama and "Miltiades" from Jamaica, crashed head-on early Tuesday in the region of Gamboa on the Panama Canal.

Bows of the vessels were slightly destroyed after the accident occurred when the Panama boat entered the canal from the Atlantic Ocean and the Jamaican boat was sailing from the Pacific Ocean.

There were no casualties or economic losses as a result of the accident, and workers have already started to repair the vessels, according to the administration, which will further investigate the accident.
