cityof-cleveland.jpg (64716 bytes)
On June 26, 1950 the Norwegian freighter Ravnefjell  collided with the City of Cleveland III in early morning fog in Lake Huron off Harbor  Beach, Mich. The Norwegian vessel crashed  into the D & C liners cabins but did not  penetrate her hull. Four passengers were lost in the collision. The Cleveland III was able to proceed to Detroit where she discharged her remaining passengers. She did not sail again and was scrapped at Buffalo, N.Y. in 1956.
