WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Two U.S. Navy submarines collided Thursday morning while on training maneuvers in the Atlantic Ocean, a senior Navy official told CNN.

The ballistic missile submarine USS Kentucky was sailing on the ocean's surface off the coast of Long Island, New York, when it was struck by the attack submarine USS San Juan. The San Juan was submerged at the time, the official said.

The accident occurred at about 9:30 a.m. There were no injuries reported as a result of the clash, which the official described as "a minor bump"
