According to reports in local newspaper Helsingsborg Dagblad, the captain made a sudden announcement that a ferry arriving from Elsinore was about to crash at around 9pm.
Three ambulances were sent to the port to treat injured passengers on the Scandlines/HH-Ferries boat. One crew member and a passenger were taken to hospital with minor injuries that needed further treatment.
Ferry services between the two ports were not expected to be affected on Monday morning.
Witnesses reported seeing glasses and dishes smashing as the ferry started to wobble ahead of the crash.
