A US warship sustained minor damage when it collided with a Japanese tugboat, the Navy's 7th Fleet announced.

The tugboat lost propulsion control and drifted into the Navy destroyer, causing a minor collision. No injuries were reported on either vessel.

The USS Benfold was conducting a scheduled exercise in Japan's Sagami Bay at the time of the collision.

The guided-missile destroyer, which remains at sea, will undergo a damage assessment and an investigation into the crash.

Saturday's crash comes after two separate incidents earlier this year involving Navy ship collisions resulted in the deaths of 17 sailors.

The Navy determined that the collisions were caused by “multiple failures” on the part of officers and sailors onboard.
