The collision between the USS San Jacinto and the nuclear-powered submarine USS Montpelier happened around 3:30pm.

A Navy official said the team aboard the cruiser saw a periscope rise from the water about 100 to 200 yards ahead of the vessel during the exercise. The cruiser ordered “all back,” but the San Jacinto still collided with the submarine.

The collision caused the collapse of the cruiser’s sonar dome, a device on the bow of the ship beneath the water line.

The dome houses some of the vessel’s electronic navigation, detection and ranging equipment.

No one was injured during the incident and there was no damage to the submarine’s nuclear-powered propulsion plant.
