Baltimore Bridge Collapse

On Tuesday, March 26th, the Baltimore, Maryland bridge collapsed as a result of a cargo ship losing power and striking one of the bridge's supports. This caused the bridge to collapse and fall into the water in a matter of seconds. Unfortunately, eight construction workers were working on the bridge when the collision occurred, but luckily, two were rescued. Divers found the bodies of another two in the water, and the other four were presumed dead. Federal inspectors mentioned that as of last June, the bridge was still in fair condition but wouldn’t have been able to survive the impact of the ship due to the bridge's structure. Ultimately, investigators said that the crash was an accident, however an investigation is still ongoing.
