And in June of the same year, a similar incident occurred with the destroyer Fitzgerald, faced with a container ship. Then seven sailors died.
With regard to the commanders of destroyers brought charges of negligence and unintentional murder.
It is known that in the near future similar accusations may be brought against other senior officers - command officers.
Earlier, senior officers who were part of the crew of the aforementioned destroyers were dismissed from service. Relatives of the victims put forward their claims against the US Navy, accusing representatives of the command of inadequate performance of official duties.
