Ship Hits Baltimore Key Bridge

The container ship Dali, owned by Grace Ocean, crashed into a pier of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore on March 26, 2024, at 1:28 a.m., bringing down the three main spans and three northeast approach spans.

The 985-foot-long ship hit the bridge in the early hours of March 26 after leaving the Port of Baltimore and losing power to its engine and navigation equipment. The bridge collapsed moments later, killing six construction workers, forcing the port to close and disrupting the shipping industry up and down the East Coast.
