A U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer collided with a Philippine-flagged cargo ship off the coast of Japan early Saturday, with at least three members of the destroyer’s crew — including its commander — requiring medical evacuation and leaving seven sailors missing.

The cause of the collision, which occurred 56 nautical miles (103 km) southwest of Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, remained unclear.
