“Heroes” stopped traffic in 90 seconds before the bridge fell in Baltimore

Baltimore, Maryland — In the middle of the night, the radio broadcast a 12-second warning: a huge freighter had lost its direction and was heading toward the Francis Scott Key Bridge.

Within about 90 seconds, police officers responded that they had managed to stop traffic on the bridge in both directions. One of them said he was about to approach to alert a construction crew.

But it was too late. Without steering and loaded with large containers, the ship crashed into one of the pillars.

“The whole bridge just fell,” said a frantic officer. “(…) To whoever, to everyone… the entire bridge just collapsed.”

When the container ship Dali slammed into the pillar around 1:30 a.m., it caused a long span of the bridge — a key piece of the region’s transportation infrastructure — to collapse into the Patapsco River. Six people are believed to have died and the loss of the bridge is expected to disrupt traffic in the area and activity at a vital commercial port.
