Iridium 33 and Kosmos 2251 collided on February 10th, 480 miles above Siberia. Both satellites were destroyed. The collision produced over 500 pieces of tractable space debris. The Chinese are concerned about debris damaging their sunsychronous satellites.

Hopefully this will not produce a chain reaction.
