Vessel Slams into Bridge, Causing Partial Collapse in Maryland

Maryland Bridge Collapse Caught on Livestream as Ship Collides with Structure

In the early hours of Tuesday morning, a ship crashed into a bridge in Maryland, causing it to collapse. The vessel, identified as the Dali, was a Singapore-flagged ship that was listed at 984 feet long. According to ship tracking data, the Dali approached a support beam of the Francis Scott Key Bridge at around 1:24 a.m. local time.

The livestream captured the moment when the vessel struck what appeared to be a bridge support beam at 1:28 a.m. The lights of the ship turned off minutes before the impact and then turned back on as it neared the bridge. Despite attempts to reach both Grace Ocean and Synergy Marine Group for comment, they did not respond.

The bridge closure was due to a collapse caused by the ship strike, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority. The Baltimore Police Department confirmed a partial bridge collapse and workers were possibly in the water. Representatives for the Maryland Transportation Authority did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
