Navy cruiser, nuclear submarine collide off East Coast; no injuries reported
Sunday drivers must have been on the road a day early.
A U.S. Navy nuclear submarine and an Aegis cruiser collided during routine training off the U.S. East Coast about 3:30 p.m. Saturday, NBC News has learned.
No personnel aboard either the USS Montpelier or USS San Jacinto were injured, Pentagon officials told NBC News. Both ships continued to operate under their own power.
The incident remained under investigation Saturday evening.
The Montpelier is a nuclear-powered Los Angeles-class fast attack sub launched in 1991. The San Jacinto is an Aegis-class missile cruiser commissioned in 1988.
