It happened very early this morning and will no doubt be the cause of loss of life.

A massive bridge collapsed in Baltimore at about 1:30 am this morning.

Emergency crews on the scene

It was a large ship that struck the Francis Scott Key Bridge over the Patapsco River. Search crews have been searching for at least 7 people thought to have gone into the water.

Multiple cars went into the water when the bridge collapsed.
