In 2001, while travelling through the Welland Canal, the Windoc collided with Bridge 11 in Allanburg, Ontario. The accident produced a large fire on board, causing minor damage to the vertical lift bridge, and destroying the ship's wheelhouse and funnel. The vessel caught fire, and was later declared a constructive total loss, but there were no reported injuries, no damage to the $6-$8 million cargo, and no pollution to the waterway. The Marine Investigation Report concluded "it is likely that [vertical lift bridge] operator's performance was impaired while the bridge span was lowered onto the Windoc."
