Dangerous Accident: Ship Strikes Bridge in Maryland and Causes Collapse

Maryland Bridge Collapse Caught on Livestream as Ship Collides with Structure

In the early hours of Tuesday morning, a large ship crashed into a bridge in Maryland, causing it to collapse. The vessel, identified as the Dali, is owned by Grace Ocean, a Singapore-based company, and managed by Synergy Marine Group, also based in Singapore. Despite attempts to reach both companies for comment, they did not respond.

According to ship tracking data, the Dali is 984 feet long and struck what appeared to be a bridge support beam at around 1:28 a.m. local time. The livestream showed the ship’s lights turn off minutes before the impact before turning back on as it neared the bridge. The bridge closure was due to a collapse caused by the ship strike, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority.

The incident highlights the potential dangers of maritime traffic near bridges and the importance of maintaining safe distances to prevent accidents like this from occurring. 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.
