Damage but no injuries as US Navy cruiser, submarine collide

A US Navy Aegis cruiser collided with a nuclear-powered submarine during exercises off the East Cost on Saturday, collapsing the sonar dome on the cruiser and possibly causing other damage, but no injuries, US Navy officials said.


The collision between the USS San Jacinto and the nuclear-powered submarine USS Montpelier occurred about 3:30 pm, the Navy said in a statement. The Navy declined to say where off the East Coast the accident occurred. (Reuters)
