Apparently it was more than just a collision. Take a look at the video.

US Navy ship collides with oil tanker in Gulf - World News

edit: BAH! NBC fooled me. They posted a video in that article of an unrelated incident.

That video that I saw there, was about another incident a few weeks ago.

mdbee, you are correct. They fooled me by putting it in the article and not stating a date or specific details.
