HONOLULU - A nuclear submarine ran aground about 350 miles south of Guam, injuring several sailors, one of them critically, the Navy said.

There were no reports of damage to the USS San Francisco's reactor plant, which was operating normally, the Navy said.u

Jon Yoshishige, a spokesman for the U.S. Pacific Fleet based at Pearl Harbor, said the Friday afternoon incident is under investigation and the 360-foot submarine was headed back to its home port in Guam.

Details on the sailors' injuries were not immediately available. The sub has a crew of 137, officials said.

Military and Coast Guard aircraft from Guam were en route to monitor the submarine and assist if needed, the Navy said.

Guam is a U.S. territory about 3,700 miles southwest of Hawaii.

Statistics show us that most traffic accidents happen within two miles of where people live. Why? Most likely because the closer to home you are, the less careful you are because you know your own territory so well and drive it everyday. It becomes routine and you don't put as much thoughtful insight into the surroundings as you might if you were miles away in unfamiliar territory.

I think the same applies to submarines. Remember it wasn't too long ago that a submarine came up abruptly in a 'routine' maneuver right under a Japanese fishing vessel. Mistakes happen when people become careless. People become careless when it becomes too 'routine'. My opinion anyway. original.gif

Probably a computer malfunction, or some kind of navigational malfunction.

Jocs analogy even though funny grin2.gif does make sense. Mistakes can happen when something becomes a routine through carelessness and laziness. Or like wurm said computer malfunction, who knows. Whatever it is I am sure there is nothing 'sinister' about it.

All I can imagine is the sub skimming through the water; the silence is broken by a grinding screech of metal on stone muffled by the water, followed briefly by a Simpsonesque D'OH reverberating through the hull...
