Baltimore Says Owner of Ship that Hit Key Bridge Was Negligent

·1 min

The owner and manager of the cargo ship responsible for the Francis Scott Key Bridge accident are being held directly responsible by the City of Baltimore. The ship hit the bridge after losing power to its engine and navigation equipment, resulting in the collapse of the bridge and the deaths of six construction workers. The ship’s owner and operator from Singapore are seeking to avoid liability for any related damages. Lawyers for the city argue that the companies should be held accountable for damages resulting from their negligence and the unseaworthiness of the vessel.
