MD: Baltimore bridge collapses after cargo ship collision

Source: United Press International

“A large cargo ship struck a major transportation bridge that spanned Baltimore’s Patapsco River early Tuesday, causing the structure to collapse, officials and authorities said. Video of the incident published online by the Harford County Volunteer Fire and EMS shows the large vessel striking the 1.6-mile-long, four-lane-wide Francis Scott Key Bridge. A fire is then ignited followed by spans of the structure falling into the waters below. … The MarineTraffic website has identified the involved vessel as the Singapore-flagged cargo ship Dali. It said it was en route to Colombo, Sri Lanka, when the crash occurred.” (03/26/24)
