The container ship Dali left Baltimore’s port on March 26, heading to Sri Lanka. It hit one of the bridge’s columns, causing part of the bridge to fall into the Patapsco River. Six workers fell into the river and died. Divers have found three bodies, but three are still missing.

The National Transportation Safety Board is looking into the ship’s power system. They found that the ship had power problems before the crash. They are examining data from the ship’s voyage recorder to understand what happened in the engine room.

Baltimore’s statement said they will hold everyone responsible for the collapse accountable. This includes the ship’s owner, charterer, manager/operator, and the ship’s manufacturer. They want to help those affected by the tragedy and seek justice.

Mayor Scott said they need to act quickly to protect the city’s interests. The ship’s owner has already filed a petition to limit its liability after the incident. They want to make sure the city is not affected by this.
