Maryland Bridge Collapse Caught on Livestream as Ship Collides with Structure

A catastrophic accident occurred early Tuesday morning in Maryland when a large ship struck a bridge, causing it to collapse. The vessel, identified as the Dali, was Singapore-flagged and measured 984 feet long according to ship tracking data. A livestream captured the moment at 1:28 a.m. when the ship struck what appeared to be a bridge support beam.

The livestream showed the ship’s lights flicker off minutes before impact, before turning back on as it neared the bridge. The vessel approached a support beam of the Francis Scott Key Bridge at around 1:24 a.m. local time, with workers possibly in the water after a partial bridge collapse due to the strike caused by the ship.

Despite attempts to reach both Grace Ocean, a Singapore-based company that owns the Dali and Synergy Marine Group, also based in Singapore for comment, they did not respond. The incident highlights the potential dangers of maritime traffic near bridges and underscores the importance of maintaining safe distances to prevent accidents like this from occurring.
