USS John S McCainA Navy guided-missile destroyer, the USS John S. McCain, collided with a commercial vessel east of Singapore early Monday local time, the Navy said.

There were 10 sailors missing and five injured, the Navy said. "Four of the injured were medically evacuated by a Republic of Singapore navy Puma helicopter to a hospital in Singapore for non-life-threatening injuries," the U.S. Navy said in a statement. "The fifth injured sailor does not require further medical attention."

The collision, with the merchant ship Alnic MC, occurred east of the Straits of Malacca and Singapore at 6:24 a.m. Japan Standard Time, as the McCain was on its way for a routine port visit in Singapore, the Navy said.

"Initial reports indicate John S. McCain sustained damage to her port side aft," the Navy said, adding that a search and rescue mission was underway.
