The Dali, a Singapore-flagged ship that is 984 feet long, crashed into the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Maryland on Tuesday morning. The ship struck a support beam of the bridge, causing it to collapse into the water.

According to footage from StreamTime Live, the incident occurred at around 1:24 a.m. local time. The lights of the ship went out briefly before impact, and then it collided with the beam at approximately 01:28. The bridge collapsed in less than 10 seconds as a result of the collision.

The ship tracking data revealed that the vessel involved in the accident was owned by Grace Ocean and operated by Synergy Marine Group, both based in Singapore. Attempts to reach both companies for comment were unsuccessful due to lack of response from either party.

The Maryland Department of Transportation immediately closed the bridge after the incident due to its collapse caused by the impact of the ship. The Baltimore Police Department reported a partial bridge collapse with workers possibly in the water. As of now, no further comment has been made by Maryland Transportation Authority regarding this matter.
