The guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain was involved in a collision with a merchant ship just east of Singapore Sunday evening. The collision was reported at 5:24 am local time, according to the Navy statement.
According to reports, the destroyer sustained damage to the port side aft.
The collision comes shortly after the top three commanders of the USS Fitzgerald - a U.S. Navy destroyer that ran into a cargo ship near Yokosuka a year ago - were removed from their positions following an investigation.
The ship is named after John S. McCain Sr., and John S. McCain Jr., Navy admirals who were the grandfather and father, respectively, of Sen.
It was the second collision in recent times involving a United States warship.

His calls for a peace treaty and dialogue have been drowned out by the war of words between Trump and Kim. State media reported that leader Kim Jong Un was watching USA moves before deciding to order the test.
The Japan-based 7th Fleet said the McCain had been heading to Singapore for a routine port visit when the collision occurred. It's 600 feet long and 105 feet wide and sails under the Liberian flag.
Commissioned in 1994, the USS John S. McCain is part of the Navy's 7th Fleet. The ship is now sailing under its own power and heading to port. Its home port is Yokosuka in Japan. Seven sailors drowned in that accident.
The statement said MV-22 Ospreys and SH-60S Sea Hawks from USS America were also responding.
