    A nuclear submarine has collided with a cruiser during routine operations off the east coast of the US.

    The US Fleet Forces Command said the Los Angeles-class submarine USS Montpelier and the Aegis cruiser USS San Jacinto collided at about 3:30pm on Saturday.

    No one was injured, and the extent of any damage to the vessels was not clear on Saturday evening, said Lieutenant Commander Brian Badura.

    "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 give details on where the incident took place or what happens next......

    From an AP article.

    How did San Jacinto not know where SSN 765 was?
