Cargo Ship That Devastated Baltimore Bridge Transported Flooring

Dali, the 984-foot container ship that crashed into the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore on Tuesday, had offloaded flooring, among other materials, just before the accident, Bloomberg reported.

The Singaporean ship was transporting containers from China, Thailand, South Korea and Vietnam and was bound for Colombo, Sri Lanka, at the time it lost power and smashed into one of the bridge’s support pillars, causing the bridge to crumble into the Patapsco River. Six construction workers who were on the bridge at the time of collapse are still unaccounted for and presumed dead, according to the Baltimore Banner.

The ship had made stops in New York and Norfolk before stopping in Baltimore.
