A Chinese warship reportedly came within 150 yards of hitting the USS Chung-Hoon on Saturday while the U.S. destroyer was conducting joint exercises with Canada in the Taiwan Strait. The incident occurred as U.S.-Chinese tensions remain high in the South China Sea.

The Chinese ship sped up and cut in front of USS Chung-Hoon’s bow, warning the U.S. ship that there would be a collision if it didn’t alter course, Canada’s Global News — whose reporters witnessed the near-miss from the HMCS Montreal — reported.

The U.S. told the Chinese ship to stay away from the destroyer and at the last moment the Chinese altered course. The Chung-Hoon was also reportedly forced to slow down and alter course over the close call.

HMCS Montreal Commander Paul Mountford said the incident was “clearly instigated by the Chinese,” according to Global News.

“The fact this was announced over the radio prior to doing it, clearly indicated this was intentional,” Mountford said.

“I am hoping that is an isolated incident that won’t happen again for us, because we have international law on our side. This is international waters,” he added.

Exclusive video by Global News captured the moment the Chinese warship came close to hitting the American destroyer.
