USS Montpelier Submarine And USS San Jacinto Aegis Cruiser Crash, Says Navy

• Huffington Post.
 

The U.S. Fleet Forces Command said in a news release that the submarine USS Montpelier and the Aegis cruiser USS San Jacinto collided at about 3:30 p.m. during routine operations. No one was injured, and the extent of any damage to the vessels was not clear Saturday evening, said Lt. Commander Brian Badura of the Fleet Forces Command.

"We have had circumstances where Navy vessels have collided at sea in the past, but they're fairly rare as to how often they do take place," Badura told The Associated Press.

Navy officials said the collision was under investigation, but declined to offer specifics on what happens next or on where the incident took place.
