Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse in Baltimore

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is actively involved in investigating the recent bridge collapse incident. NTSB Chair Jennifer Homendy provided an update on the situation, highlighting the importance of verifying the numbers related to the cars and individuals present on the bridge at the time of the collapse.

Homendy mentioned that while there have been various figures circulating regarding the number of vehicles and people involved, the focus is on confirming these details accurately. She emphasized that the responsibility for verifying these numbers lies with local authorities such as the Maryland State Police and the Maryland Transportation Authority, in collaboration with federal partners.

Search teams are currently engaged in the process of confirming the figures, with the primary objective being to ensure the safety and well-being of all individuals affected by the incident. Homendy stressed that the focus is on the ongoing search and rescue efforts rather than fixating on specific numerical data.

She highlighted the collaborative nature of the response, with multiple agencies working together to assess the situation and provide support where needed. The priority remains on locating any potential victims and ensuring that all necessary resources are deployed to aid in the search and rescue operations.

Homendy's remarks underscored the comprehensive approach being taken to address the aftermath of the bridge collapse. The coordination between local, state, and federal entities reflects a unified effort to handle the situation effectively and prioritize the safety of those impacted by the incident.
