Cargo Ship Collision Causes Major Bridge Collapse in Baltimore, Six Missing

1 Mins read

Early Tuesday in Baltimore, a cargo ship hit a bridge after losing power, causing the bridge to fall into the river. This incident might stop ships from coming into an important port for a long time. Six people are missing and believed to be gone. They stopped looking for them until Wednesday.

The crew of the ship sent out an emergency call right before hitting the Francis Scott Key Bridge. This allowed officials to keep cars off the bridge, according to the governor of Maryland. As the ship got close, there were signs of trouble, like black smoke and flickering lights. It hit the bridge hard, making a part of the bridge fall.

Here’s what happened:

  • The emergency was reported at about 1:30 a.m., saying a ship leaving Baltimore hit the bridge.
  • The ship had lost power, and the crew called for help just before the crash.
  • They have rescued some people from the water and are looking for more.
