More common than you think
U.S. Navy ships are close to each other a lot. It’s true, most of the time they spend is out on the open waters where there’s almost nothing to run into, but sometimes things can go bad when they get in close quarters with another ship. The crew on these ships are some of the best in the world, but everyone makes mistakes. These are some of the worst collisions the U.S. Navy has ever had to deal with.
Naval collisions happen a lot more often than you would think. All that open water makes you feel like it’s impossible to run into something… Surprise!
