From Pothole Repair to Conspiracy Theories: The Mysterious Collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore

Conspiracy theories arise following collapse of Baltimore Bridge: Is this the start of World War III?

The bridge in Baltimore collapsed after a container ship struck it, causing it to collapse. This happened just hours after the incident. Despite authorities finding no evidence of criminal activity, conspiracy theories began to circulate about a deliberate attack. The Singapore-flagged ship struck a pier of the Francis Scott Key Bridge early Tuesday, causing it to collapse. Six workers who were repairing potholes on the bridge are missing and presumed dead.

As soon as the incident occurred, various theories emerged on social media platforms implicating different groups such as terrorists or foreign agents in the supposed attack. Influencers like Andrew Tate and conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones also added fuel to these speculations, suggesting cyber attacks and hinting at the possibility of a Third World War.

However, Singapore port authorities reported that the collapse was due to a “momentary loss of propulsion” of the ship, as seen in video surveillance footage. Despite this explanation, rumors continued to circulate with some linking the incident to conflicts in Gaza or questioning diversity initiatives by companies.

Authorities reiterated that there was no indication of a terrorist attack. Despite these assurances, conspiracy theories continued to gain traction online with various interpretations of the incident being put forward by different individuals and groups.
