It was one of several accidents in the region that raised concern over the safety and operational effectiveness of U.S. naval vessels.

The USS John S. McCain crash marked the fourth major incident involving Navy ships in the western Pacific over the past year, including the June 17 collision of the destroyer USS Fitzgerald and a Philippine-flagged container ship southwest of Yokosuka, Japan that left seven sailors dead.
