Everett-based Shoup in fender-bender off California coast

The Everett-based USS Shoup was involved in a collision with a 21-foot motor boat late Sunday night off the coast of Southern California, Navy officials said this morning.

No injuries were reported. Both vessels sustained minor damage.

What happened is not yet clear, said Navy Cmdr. Greg Hicks with the Third Fleet public affairs office.

Rescue teams from the Shoup and the Coast Guard cutter Petrel from San Diego provided assistance and ensured there were no injuries, Hicks said.

The incident is under investigation.

The 509-foot-long Shoup, a guided-missile destroyer with about 380 sailors aboard, is in the waters off Southern California participating in an exercise with the USS Abraham Lincoln strike group in preparation for an upcoming deployment.

The Los Angeles Times reported that three people were aboard the civilian motor boat. The boat had a crack in its hull but did not take on water or lose power. It was escorted to Oceanside, Calif., by the Coast Guard cutter, the newspaper reported.
