The investigation into the USS Fitzgerald’s collision last week has begun and investigators are trying to determine how the Navy destroyer and Philippine-flagged container ship got so close in the first place.
Speaking about the incident, retired Navy Captain Lawrence Brennan said, “It’s virtually unprecedented for two large ships, both operated by world-class shipping companies, to be in waters where they should expect traffic and not see each other.”
At the time of the collision, it was reported that the Captain of the Fitzgerald was not on the bridge and many of the ship’s crew were still in berthing compartments, which could lead investigators to discover that an alarm didn’t sound prior to the collision.
