Francis Scott Key Bridge

In a startling turn of events, the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore collapsed after a ship collided with it, as the Maryland Transportation Authority reported early Tuesday. “I-695 Key Bridge collapse due to ship strike,” the MTA shared on social media, alerting drivers to steer clear of the route over the Patapsco River and describing it as an “active scene.”

Initially, the MTA announced the closure of interstate lanes in both directions due to an “incident” on the bridge, necessitating traffic redirection, as per timesofmalta. According to a spokesperson from the Baltimore Police Department, potential individuals were in the river. “I can confirm at 1:35 a.m., Baltimore City police were notified of a partial bridge collapse, with workers possibly in the water, at the Francis Scott Key Bridge,” stated Detective Niki Fennoy.

The ship monitoring website MarineTraffic depicted a Singapore-flagged container ship named Dali, which was halted under the bridge early Tuesday.
