Cargo Ship Collision At Baltimore Bridge: Search For Missing Continues

Incident at the Rainbow Bridge border crossing in Niagara Falls

More than 12 hours following a cargo ship collision with the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is actively engaged in search and rescue operations to locate individuals affected by the incident. The NTSB Chairperson, Jennifer Homendy, emphasized that the primary focus remains on finding people who may still be unaccounted for.

Homendy stated that due to the ongoing search and rescue efforts, detailed information about the cause of the bridge collapse is not yet available for disclosure. The NTSB, known for its fact-based approach to investigations, is leading the inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the collision at the Francis Scott Key Bridge.

Officials have confirmed that at least six individuals are currently missing in the aftermath of the bridge collapse. Homendy reiterated the NTSB's commitment to providing accurate information based on factual findings rather than speculation.

As the investigation progresses, the NTSB will continue to coordinate with relevant authorities and agencies to gather essential data and evidence to determine the root cause of the tragic incident. The safety and well-being of individuals impacted by the bridge collapse remain the top priority for all involved in the response efforts.

The NTSB's thorough and meticulous approach to investigations ensures that a comprehensive analysis of the events leading to the bridge collapse will be conducted, with a focus on preventing similar incidents in the future. Updates on the investigation will be provided as more information becomes available.
