Baltimore Bridge collapses 

The Baltimore Francis Key Bridge has collapsed due to a ship collision on Tuesday. 

The bridge crumbled to pieces as the large vessel crashed into its supporting structures. The visual of the event is surreal as the bridge looks so frail falling into the water.

Many began investigating the building behind this structure. Will improvements be made in the rebuild?

Officials began laying out an underwater map of the breakage on Wednesday and continue to search the main area of the incident. This main roadway for many in Baltimore remains closed until further notice.
