Unprecedented Tragedy on the Francis Scott Key Bridge: The Haunting Story of Jayden and the Shipping Catastrophe

Man cross Baltimore bridge just 3 minutes before its collapse following an argument.

On Tuesday morning, the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore collapsed due to a ship collision with its supports. The bridge’s collapse led to the tragic death of six construction workers. One Baltimore resident, Jayden, narrowly avoided being on the bridge at the time of the collapse.

Jayden initially planned to stay overnight at his girlfriend’s home on the north side of the river but after an argument, he crossed the bridge back home. Feeling guilty about the argument, he crossed the bridge again but was sent back by his girlfriend. The third time he crossed just three minutes later and that was when tragedy struck as the bridge collapsed.

The engineering experts pointed to the massive size of the 95,000-ton container ship as a key factor in the bridge’s collapse, with implications for both the shipping and engineering industries. However, a distress call from the ship allowed officials to close car traffic across the bridge beforehand and prevent further casualties.
