Video Captures Moment of Dali Ship Crash into Francis Scott Key Bridge, Causing Catastrophic Collapse

Maryland Bridge Collapse Caught on Livestream as Ship Collides with Structure

In the early hours of Tuesday morning, a massive ship crashed into a bridge in Maryland, causing it to collapse. According to ship tracking data, the vessel is Singapore-flagged and measures 984 feet long. A YouTube livestream captured the moment at 1:28 a.m. when the ship struck what appeared to be a bridge support beam.

The Dali, identified as the vessel, approached a support beam of the Francis Scott Key Bridge at around 1:24 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 vessel struck the beam at around 1:28 a.m., causing the bridge to collapse in less than 10 seconds.

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. The bridge closure was due to a collapse caused by the ship strike, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority.

Workers were possibly in the water after a partial bridge collapse occurred following the incident involving maritime traffic near bridges and highlighting safe distances that need to be maintained in order to prevent accidents like this from occurring again.[
