    Result of a collision at sea the night before?

    Hello.

    Result of a collision at sea the night before, the big freighter had a gash in her side extending from the shelter deck down to the turn of the bilge.

    Shouldn't the part in question read "As a result of a collision at sea the night before"? Then the whole sentence would be "As a result of a collision at sea the night before, the big freighter had a gash in her side extending from the shelter deck down to the turn of the bilge".

    What do you think?

    Thank you.

    Re: Result of a collision at sea the night before?

    Yes, the original is not grammatical. Yours is the most obvious solution.
