A Danish tall ship was involved in a minor collision with a new U.S. Navy littoral combat ship in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor on Sunday. Some video of the incident has been posted online.
The incident took place during Maryland Fleet Week and Flyover Baltimore event.
The training ship Danmark was being escorted by tugs when it collided with the USS Minneapolis St. Paul (LCS 21), which was moored at the time. No injuries are serious damage was reported on either vessel.
The Danmark is a full-rigged training ship built by the Danish Government in 1932.
“No U.S. Navy personnel were injured and no serious damage sustained onboard USS Minneapolis St. Paul (LCS 21) when the Danish training ship Danmark made contact with the moored LCS while the Danish ship was getting underway from the Baltimore Inner Harbor Sept 11, 2022,” a U.S. Navy spokesperson said in a statement reported by CBS News. “The ships were in port taking part in what has been a fantastic week in Baltimore for Maryland Fleet Week and Flyover Baltimore.”
USS Minneapolis St. Paul was commissioned this past May in Duluth, Minnesota. The ship was built by Lockheed Martin and Fincantieri Marinette Marine in Marinette, Wisconsin.
