FBI opens probe into Baltimore bridge collapse

Baltimore Key Bridge amidst Agents with the FBI boarded the Dali on Monday, the cargo ship that struck the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore and triggered its collapse last month, amidst reports that it has opened a criminal probe into the events leading up to the collapse.

The agency has opened a criminal investigation into the bridge’s collapse that will focus on whether the crew of the ship, named the Dali, knew that its systems had issues when it left port, the Washington Post first reported.

The FBI declined to answer questions on a possible investigation, but told USA TODAY, “The FBI is present aboard the cargo ship Dali conducting court authorized law enforcement activity. There is no other public information available and we will have no further comment.”
