Search suspended until Wednesday for six people presumed dead when bridge collapsed in Baltimore

Baltimore, Maryland— A cargo ship lost power and crashed into a major bridge. Baltimore early on Tuesday, destroying the arch in a matter of seconds and precipitating it into the river, in a terrible crash that could affect an important shipping port for months. Six people who were on the bridge remain missing and are believed to have died. Their search was suspended and will resume Wednesday.

The ship’s operators issued a distress call moments before the accident that brought down the Francis Scott Key Bridge, allowing authorities to limit vehicle traffic on the stretch, Maryland’s governor said.

The ship crashed into one of the bridge supports, causing the structure to collapse like a toy. The ship caught fire, emitting thick, black smoke.

As the ship sped toward the bridge at a “very, very fast speed,” authorities only had enough time to prevent cars from entering the bridge, Maryland Governor said. Wes Moore.
