'Sudden turn' by US warship led to collision off Singapore: report

'Sudden turn' by US warship led to collision off Singapore: reportA “sudden turn” by the American warship USS John S. McCain led to a collision with a tanker last year off Singapore that left 10 sailors dead, a report by the city-state’s government said Thursday. Singapore’s transport ministry, releasing the results of its investigation into the incident, said a “series of missteps” by the destroyer’s crew and insufficient action by those of the tanker, the Alnic MC, contributed to the accident. The commander of the John S. McCain is facing charges including negligent homicide and dereliction of duty, the US Navy said in January, after its own investigation into the incident found “multiple failures” by the ship’s crew.
