The USS Donald Cook collided with a Chinese fishing boat near a naval base in Singapore last month.
The collision was captured on video, and a US official has said the collision was caused by a “technical malfunction” on the Chinese vessel’s electronic control system.
The US Navy has released video of the collision on social media.
The ship’s commanding officer, Captain Matthew T. Cramer, was killed and six sailors were injured.
