A drone malfunctioned and collided with a United States Navy ship, injuring two sailors testing combat weapons off the coast of Southern California.

The USS Chancellorsville was using the drone to test its radar tracking for a guided missile when a glitch caused it to crash, CNN reports. The two sailors were treated for minor burns and the damaged cruiser will return to San Diego for repair.

The Navy is looking into what caused the malfunction.



Since we are looking at pilot-less aircraft,  full of nuclear weapons, as the future of our tactical defense strategy, should this not serve as a warning of disasters to come.
