A Navy nuclear-powered attack submarine and a Saudi Arabian merchant ship collided in the Atlantic off Norfolk, Va., but there were no injuries, the Navy said. It was the latest in a spate of Navy accidents this year, including crashes of several F-14 fighter jets. The collision damaged a control plane and the rudder of the submarine Jacksonville, which headed for port at the Norfolk Navy Shipyard under its own power.

A ship captain involved in a collision that on Sunday spilled 30,000 gallons of fuel oil into the environmentally sensitive Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries blamed the accident on the wayward course of the other vessel. Capt. John (Jack) Jones, who was piloting the Neptune Jade, told Coast Guard investigators in Norfolk, Va., that his 800-foot container ship would have split the 635-foot Columbus America if he had not veered to the left.
