No ‘links to terrorism’ were involved in the bridge crash in Baltimore.

Baltimore Bridge

On Tuesday morning, a significant section of a bridge in Baltimore, Maryland, collapsed following a collision with a cargo ship. The vessel transmitted a distress signal, prompting the closure of essential communication on the bridge. Nevertheless, the ship’s initial collision resulted in the construction workers on the bridge being submerged in the frigid waters. Rescue activities are ongoing, with divers and sonar crews actively involved. The bridge has been closed at both entrances. Initial findings indicate that the bridge collapse was an unintentional occurrence and not a deliberate act of terrorism.

Dali’s cargo ship collided with a pillar on the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, Maryland, at approximately 1:30 a.m. As per MarineTraffic, a maritime data portal, the cargo ship, measuring 948 feet in length, departed from the port of Baltimore at 1 a.m. and is currently en route to Sri Lanka.

The Governor of Maryland, Wes Moore, said that the cargo ship reported to the authorities that it had lost power. He also said that there was no “credible evidence of a terrorist attack” and termed the crash an accident. He praised the rapid response of workers who stopped cars from traveling on the bridge to save lives and called them “heroes.”

Eight construction workers were reportedly working on the bridge, filling potholes. The bridge had no structural faults. Transportation Secretary of Maryland Paul J. Wiedefeld said that divers had rescued two people, one of whom had been hospitalized.

He also said that authorities do not think that any drivers in their cars have submerged in the waters below. All the crew members in the cargo ship Dali are reported to be safe.

Governor Moore has declared a state of emergency. His office is in close communication with U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. The White House released a statement stating President Joe Biden was briefed about the collapse.

The Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, Maryland, named after the Maryland-born author of the Star Spangled Banner, the nation’s national anthem, is an essential bridge through which 30,000 commuters travel daily. The port also handles a record amount of cargo, and the bridge’s collapse has hit Baltimore’s vital trade hub.
