Cargo Ship Destroys Key Bridge in Maryland

A cargo ship that rammed into Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge on Tuesday, March 26, caused a near-total collapse of the bridge resulting in a massive disruption in and out of the Port of Baltimore. 

Search-and-rescue efforts ended Tuesday evening and have shifted to the recovery mission of six missing people who are believed to be in the Patapsco River.

According to officials, the crash was likely not intentional. According to a governor, the incident is still “very much a search and rescue mission.”

“This is no ordinary bridge — this is one of the cathedrals of American infrastructure. It has been part of the skyline of this region for longer than many of us have been alive,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said. “So the path to normalcy will not be easy, will not be quick, will not be inexpensive. But we will rebuild together.”

According to the Maryland transportation Author, around 30,000 vehicles crossed the bridge per day.
