Two crew members injured in storm and dropped off at Bermuda
The "Pegasus Highway" was heading to Bermuda to disembark two crew members who were injured in the night of Jan 5, 2018, when the vessel was hit by a rogue wave during cargo inspections 300 miles northwest of Bermuda, resulting in both crew members falling. The vessel was inbound to Bermuda to disembark the two Filipino crewmembers, one suffering lacerations to the face, and the other with head, hand and leg injuries. Medical treatment was administered onboard with the vessel then 420 miles east of Chesapeake Bay, unable to return to the U.S.A. due to continuing bad weather.
Car carrier detained due to defiencies
The Coast Guard detained the "Pegasus Highway" in the port of Tacoma on Sep 9, 2015, due to safety deficiencies. The vessel was required to remain in port until the deficiencies have been rectified. A Port State Control exam team from Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound conducted a routine Port State and International Ship and Port Facility Security exam aboard the vessel. While aboard, the Coast Guard discovered multiple areas that did not meet regulations set forth in the Safety of Life at Sea Convention. The most severe deficiency involved a fire detection system that was found to be inoperable. Without a properly functioning fire detection system, a fire on a deck carrying vehicles could have burned without the crew receiving an early warning.
