YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan — A new commander has taken charge of a Navy cruiser that collided with a fishing vessel east of the Korean Peninsula earlier this year
Capt. Jen Ellinger assumed command of the guided-missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain from Capt. Chris Cegielski Thursday in San Diego, a Navy statement said.
Cegielski was in charge of the Ticonderoga-class cruiser when it collided with a South Korean fishing vessel on May 9.
The Navy hasn’t released many details about the accident, although the Lake Champlain was able to finish its five-and-a-half-month deployment before returning to San Diego in June.
