This is pretty distressing news. It looks like the container should took a hard right turn at the site of the collision then carried on as they got their act together. before coming back. So we are possibly back to my original thought that it was a crossing situation and the box boat came to starboard when in extremis as required. As to why or if they didn't report correctly, that will develop pretty quickly. I wouldn't be surprised if they contacted their DP (Designated Person - 24 hr. emergency contact) and were told to stand-by on reporting. Reporting requirements are murkier than you would expect. With that said, there is a difference between a requirement, and an ethical obligation.
