The Navy has released a report on the events leading to and immediately following the collision between the destroyer USS Fitzgerald and merchant vessel ACX Crystal.  Well worth your time, especially if you did not find the depiction of sinking in Dunkirk sufficiently harrowing (see especially points 28 and 29).
