Livestream Footage Shows Maryland Bridge Collapsing After Ship Collision

Ship Strike Causes Catastrophic Collapse of Francis Scott Key Bridge in Maryland

On Tuesday morning, a Singapore-flagged ship crashed into the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Maryland. The ship, which is 984 feet long, struck a support beam of the bridge causing it to collapse into the water. A YouTube livestream captured the moment when the incident occurred.

According to video footage from StreamTime Live, the ship approached the bridge around 1:24 a.m. local time, with its lights turning off briefly before impact. The vessel then collided with the beam at around 1:28 a.m., resulting in the bridge collapsing in less than 10 seconds.

The ship involved in the crash was identified as the Dali, owned by Grace Ocean and managed by Synergy Marine Group, both based in Singapore. Attempts to reach both companies for comment were unsuccessful.

Following the incident, the bridge was closed off by the Maryland Transportation Authority due to the collapse caused by the ship strike. The Baltimore Police Department reported a partial bridge collapse with workers possibly in the water. At the time of reporting, no further comment from the Maryland Transportation Authority had been provided to Business Insider.
