Mystery of Massive Ship Striking Bridge: Video Shows Impact on Maryland’s Francis Scott Key Bridge

Maryland Bridge Collapse Caught on Livestream as Ship Collides with Structure

A massive ship crashed into a bridge in Maryland early Tuesday morning, causing it to collapse. According to ship tracking data, the vessel is Singapore-flagged and measures 984 feet long. A YouTube livestream captured the moment at 1:28 a.m. when the vessel struck what appeared to be a bridge support beam.

The ship, known as the Dali, was heading towards a support beam of the Francis Scott Key Bridge at around 1:24 a.m. local time. The livestream showed the ship’s lights turn off for several minutes before the impact, before turning back on as it neared the bridge. The vessel struck the beam at around 1:28 a.m., causing the bridge to collapse within less than 10 seconds.

The Dali is owned by Grace Ocean, a Singapore-based company, and managed by Synergy Marine Group, also based in Singapore. Despite multiple attempts to reach both companies for comment, they did not respond. The Maryland Transportation Authority confirmed that the bridge closure was due to a collapse caused by the ship strike.

The Baltimore Police Department confirmed a partial bridge collapse, with workers possibly in the water. Representatives for the Maryland Transportation Authority did not immediately respond to requests for comment. This incident highlights the potential dangers of maritime traffic near bridges and emphasizes the importance of maintaining safe distances to prevent accidents like this from occurring in future instances
