FBI Investigates ship that caused Baltimore Bridge collapse

by Renata

The FBI has started a criminal investigation into the incident that caused the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge, killing six construction workers. They are looking to find out if the crew had known about potential issues with the cargo ship when they left port.

Previous reports said that the vessel had passed inspections requiring only minor fixes in Chile last year. The New York Coast Guard also inspected the ship last September and found no issues. The FBI has not given any more updates on the situation.

US Attorney Erek Barron and Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott said they will hold to account whoever is responsible for the bridge’s collapse.
