The USS Fitzgerald was one of two US 7th fleet destroyers that collided with freighters in 2017. Here is a gripping account of what happened: https://features.propublica.org/navy-accidents/uss-fitzgerald-destroyer-crash-crystal/

It's a long read full of bravery and tragedy with some excellent graphics and animations.
