HALIFAX - The Royal Canadian Navy says the commander of a supply vessel that was involved in a collision last year has been transferred to other duties.

Navy spokeswoman Jeri Grychowski says Cmdr. Larry Jones was transferred because of the incident on Nov. 4 when HMCS Preserver collided with a floating dock in Halifax harbour.

The navy has said the vessel was damaged in the collision.

Grychowski says the change of command happened after a preliminary report into collision, but she wouldn't say what the report found.

She says Jones was transferred to other duties on March 9.

The Navy says a final report on the incident has yet to be completed.
