Baltimore Bridge Collapse: Ship’s Crew Rescues Lives, Six Still Missing

In Baltimore, a state of emergency was declared by Governor Moore after several workers fell into the waters of the Patapsco River while repairing potholes on a bridge. Two workers were rescued, with one in serious condition, but six people are still missing. The search continues using boats and divers. According to authorities, photographs of the accident show the ship losing power before striking the bridge support. Sonar detected multiple vehicles in the water, which is approximately 50 feet deep.

The collapse of the bridge, which opened in 1977 and is part of Interstate 695, is expected to halt activity at the port of Baltimore. This will affect the export and import shipments of vehicles, particularly from Nissan, Toyota, and General Motors. More than 40 vessels are stranded in the port, and at least thirty scheduled arrivals will likely be diverted to other east coast ports.

The ship’s lights went out suddenly and the vessel changed direction, leading to the collision. An emergency message was sent about the electricity problem, helping to save lives. Five vehicles were found underwater, but no victims were found inside. The incident has caused significant disruptions at the port of Baltimore as crews work to repair
