On March 26, 2024, following a power loss, a 984-foot cargo ship collided with the Francis Scott Key Bridge, leading to its collapse into the Patapsco River in Baltimore, Maryland. While the bodies of two construction workers were rescued from a submerged truck, four individuals remain missing and are presumed deceased.

The exact cause of the crash remains unclear, but discussions regarding an investigation into the bridge’s construction and structure are forthcoming. This incident is deeply tragic, and our heartfelt condolences extend to the families affected by this devastating event. While the search for the remaining bodies may have been temporarily halted, the memory of this day will forever remain with us.
