Bridge Breakdown: Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge Collapses After Ship Collision

Payam Javan: A catastrophic incident unfolded in Baltimore, Maryland, as a container ship collided with the Francis Scott Key Bridge, causing significant structural damage and sending vehicles plunging into the river below.

Rescuers are frantically searching for at least seven individuals, with two already rescued and one in serious condition. The collision, which occurred during the early hours of Tuesday, resulted in a massive fire aboard the vessel, emitting thick black smoke.

The mayor described the event as an “unthinkable tragedy,” while authorities grapple with the dynamic count of potential casualties. Sonar indicates submerged vehicles in the chilly waters, adding complexity to the rescue operation. The bridge collapse has prompted Maryland Governor Wes Moore to declare a state of emergency, with federal resources deployed and the FBI on the scene.

Synergy Marine Group confirmed their ship, the “Dali,” struck a bridge pillar, but all crew members, including the pilots, are safe. The incident has led to the closure of the bridge and major traffic disruptions, with ongoing efforts to manage the situation and aid those affected.
